The EOD COE web site was created to enable sharing of information within the EOD community. It is useful to those within EOD community such as those at operational, tactical and strategic levels, scientists, people working in the field of training, execution, development and research, and companies dealing with EOD products.

The website offers information access to databases areas:

  • Lessons learned from both operations and training
  • Training and education for current operations
  • Concept, doctrine and standardization development
  • Technologies, research and development

Some content of the website and information displayed are a password protected and access is granted only to the registered users, though most of the information appears very accessible.

They also hold events and have a news page, outlining progress in relation to EOD. The EOD Equipment Database has recently been launched, accessible to registered users.
