    Is there any reason why a developer could not undertake UXO removal without involving the Navy, if a suitably qualified contractor was used?

        Modified answer to previously asked (10-12-2015) question:

        A developer is not allowed to undertake UXO removal with a qualified contractor. The Royal Netherlands Navy is responsible for the disposal (removal) of all UXO encountered.

        Rijkswaterstaat Zee en Delta, part of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the environment, is the competent authority regarding the public security. It is advisable to consult the competent authorities in regards to management measures that can be taken to prevent stagnation in the execution phase. A possible measure is to safely move the UXO outside the work area awaiting destruction.
