VA’s Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit Registry
Registry for Veterans and Service Members
VA's Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit Registry allows eligible Veterans and service members to document their exposures and report health concerns through an online questionnaire.
Latest update: The Airborne Hazards Open Burn Pit Registry questionnaire is moving to a new improved platform. During this transition, registrants are unable to access the registry. We apologize for the inconvenience, but want to secure Veteran and service member data in the best way possible. In order to ensure there are no data breaches during this move, the site will be off-line until Monday, June 17, 2019.
Eligible Veterans and service members include those who served in:
- Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation New Dawn
- Djibouti, Africa on or after September 11, 2001
- Operations Desert Shield or Desert Storm
- Southwest Asia theater of operations on or after August 2, 1990
