Q / What is the difference between a preliminary and detailed UXO risk assessment?

A / ​BombRisk provides a preliminary online UXO assessment which considers a range of risk factors.
The results of a BombRisk assessment may recommend that a detailed UXO risk assessment be undertaken.

“The purpose of the preliminary risk assessment is to enable the non-UXO specialist to place a site in context with the potential risk from UXO and to identify whether more detailed assessment is required. The assessment is based on data obtained from a desktop review of historical information regarding site location, previous site development, wartime bombing records etc.”
