About ITEP (Summary of mission)

International Test and Evaluation Program (ITEP)

On July 17th 2000, Belgium, Canada, the Netherlands, Sweden,
Great Britain, the United States, and the European Commission
signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the International
Test and Evaluation Program for Humanitarian Demining (ITEP).

The purpose is to develop standards, coordinate and perform tests
of materials and methods, and disseminate information about test
results. Co-utilization of resources and expertise from participating
ITEP countries will allow allocated resources to be used more
efficiently, thus contributing to improvement of global humani-
tarian demining programs.
