DEFEXO067
License explosive facilities and potential explosive sites

Assessment tool

Version 1.0
Issue Date: November 2018


This unit describes the skills required to inspect and license explosive ordnance facilities and potential explosion sites and review current licences. Explosive ordnance licensing applies to all potential explosion sites and is part of the quality and safety control processes. It includes inspecting the potential explosive facility, applying formulae to determine the net explosive quantity and compatibility for the facility, and preparing the licensing documentation for approval.

This unit applies to personnel who are required to license explosive ordnance facilities and potential explosion sites, and review current licences.

The skills and knowledge described in this unit must be applied within the legislative, regulatory and policy environment in which they are carried out. Organisational policies and procedures must be consulted and adhered to.

Those undertaking this unit would work independently and as part of a team, under indirect supervision, use discretion and judgement, and take responsibility for the quality of their output. They would perform complex tasks in a broad range of contexts.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to unit at the time of publication.

You may want to include more information here about the target group and the purpose of the assessments (eg formative, summative, recognition)

ELEMENTS

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA

Elements describe the essential outcomes

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions section.

1. Plan and prepare for licensing

1.1 Identify and confirm explosive ordnance facility to be licensed.

1.2 Identify and assemble documentation related to the facility.

1.3 Liaise with relevant personnel.

1.4 Review previous licensing history documentation.

2. Inspect facility

2.1 Confirm serviceability of the facility.

2.2 Confirm construction standards of the facility.

2.3 Take measurements in accordance with licensing requirements.

2.4 Apply formulae and perform calculations on measurements.

2.5 Compare data to licensing requirements to identify shortfalls.

3. Prepare licence application

3.1 Confirm shortfalls have been rectified.

3.2 Prepare licensing documentation and forward to approving authority.

3.3 Ensure documentation, records and reports related to the facility licence are maintained.

Evidence required to demonstrate competence must satisfy all of the requirements of the elements and performance criteria. If not otherwise specified the candidate must demonstrate evidence of performance of the following on at least one occasion.

calculating licensing requirements

communicating with stakeholders effectively

identifying problems and non-adherence to policy and standards

undertaking measurements of volume, length, width, perimeter and area

Evidence required to demonstrate competence must satisfy all of the requirements of the elements and performance criteria. If not otherwise specified the depth of knowledge demonstrated must be appropriate to the job context of the candidate.

Operational knowledge of:

explosive ordnance licensing formulae

documentation requirements

inspection procedures

policies and procedures applicable to licensing

Competency should be assessed in an actual workplace or in a simulated environment, with access to equipment and infrastructure appropriate to the outcome. Competency should be demonstrated over time to ensure the candidate is assessed across a variety of situations.

Assessors must satisfy the NVR/AQTF mandatory competency requirements for assessors.
