    Abstract

    The ICAO Ad Hoc Group of Specialists on the Detection of Explosives was responsible for the preparation and monitoring of the technical annex for the recently signed International Convention on the Marking of Plastic Explosives for the Purposes of Detection. It is also currently developing protocols and standards for the testing and evaluation of explosives detection equipment Under the umbrella of ICAO the group has developed an approach that has very successfully dealt with the challenge of consensus building in this specialized area of new technology and rapidly evolving capability.
