Biological And Chemical Munitions Disposal(BCMD)

Biological and Chemical Munitions pose particular handling and disposal hazards. Not only will counter-threat personnel be expected to deal with modern munitions that require EOD attention, the possibility of encountering old unserviceable and possibly degraded biological and chemical munitions (with inherent associated risks) is ever present. Preparation of an appropriately trained and equipped response to deal with the munitions either in site or at pre-arranged demolition site is critical.

WCTS has many years of expertise in dealing with Biological and Chemical Munitions Disposal (BCMD), and offers its customers a service to develop a BCMD capability from the start or to improve an existing one. WCTS can also assist with BCMD response doctrine and SOP development.

WCTS training is modular and can be adapted to create a course that exactly targets the customers’ requirements. This flexibility allows WCTS to design a course in line with the students needs and missions, their available equipment, and with the existing or predetermined threats.
