Explosives and the Law

This is a list of current UK and International Explosive law, regulations and provisions (see key at bottom of table). It is a “work in progress” document and will be updated by members of the EIG periodically. If you think there is a piece of legislation missing from the list, or any other edit needed, then we would be pleased to hear from you. Please email Charles Smith directly. A list of Guidance is also available

You can sort or filter the Table by clicking on the arrows in each column – we have tried to identify which pieces of legislation are relevant to each sector – but the tagging is not definitive – please check all relevant legislation to ensure that you comply.



Ma = Manufacturing
Im = Import
St = Storage
Tr = Transport
Re = Retail
Ex = Export
Di = Firework Displays
