New Laws on Explosives

Two new laws will take effect on 1st October 2014 relevant to the explosives industry. The Explosives Regulations 2014 and The Acetylene Safety Regulations 2014 consolidate other regulations and the aim is to simplify regulatory burdens by clarifying requirements. The new laws follow a review which highlighted that piecemeal and complicated requirements previously in place were causing considerable confusion, particularly in areas such as labelling.
