What is CS-OO?

CS-OO stands for Certification Scheme for the Detection of Explosive Remnants of War. The CS-OOO contains the requirements that a civil explosives detection company must meet in order to be certified and is enshrined in law. Certification of the detection companies was created in the 90s to ensure the safety and health of and around the explosives detection process. Since 2021 the CS-OO is in force. Every civilian explosives detection company must comply with at least subarea A or B within the CS-OOO. The CS-OOO is managed by the Vomes Foundation.
