Action Standards (IMAS): Standard 1997 Original at http://www.mineactionstandards.org/1997standards.htm
Our Local Archiv version exists just to have everything available everytime ;-) and displaying the source (Section5.10) where 99,6% clearance as standard allowed the humanitarian deminers to oversee 4 live mines at 1000 existing ones. KMMCS is working at a 100% standard and had prooven to fulfill this guarantee.
(IMAS): Standard 1997 Original at http://www.mineactionstandards.org/1997standards.htm
The actual IMAS Edition 2 http://www.mineactionstandards.org/imas.htm contains NO Subsection, not even a planned one, for Stand Alone Mechancial Mine Clearance that KMMCS can do. The only nearby one is the planned 9.50 for Mechanical Assisted Clearance. Actual overview at http://www.mineactionstandards.org/IMAS_archive/Related/Framework(2003).pdf.
Remarkable description for the reason, why to change the phrase from "The contractor must achieve at least 99.6 % of the agreed standard of clearance" to "all mine should be cleared" and than there is an understanding that there may be something left.
At http://www.mineactionstandards.org/IMAS_archive/Amended/Amended2/IMAS_0920_2.pdf Section C.5. Land use: "The target of humanitarian mine clearance remains the removal or destruction of ALL mines and UXO from the specified area to the specified depth."
