If a suspect explosive item is picked up do not land it on deck and, if possible lay it in approximately 10m/33ft/5.5fm. If this depth cannot be achieved more than 1000m away from any buildings on the foreshore, lay the item in up to 20m/66ft/11fm, clear of shipping routes and fishing grounds. Report its position as accurately as possible (i.e. GPS), depth and marking float details to HM Coastguard. Further guidance is available in Annual Notice to Mariners No 6.
