BMAP Fact Sheet

The Bomb-Making Materials Awareness Program (BMAP) is a counter-terrorism risk management bombing prevention program. BMAP focuses on restricting access by malicious actors to explosive precursor chemicals, explosive powders, exploding target materials, associated components, and delivery methods. The program is most effective during the terrorist attack cycle’s planning phase. The two focus areas of BMAP are the acquisition of materials and bomb-building stages.
