The Control of Explosives Precursors Regulations 2014 – pyrotechnic hobbyists

The Home Office will be implementing EU regulation 98/2013 on the Marketing and Use of Explosives Precursors on 2 September 2014.

The Control of Explosives Precursors Regulations 2014 restricts the sale of certain chemicals that can be used in the illicit manufacture of explosives precursors to members of the general public unless they hold a licence. Businesses selling restricted chemicals must  ensure a warning label is affixed and must verify the buyer has a licence.

The regulation also introduces requirements to report suspicious transactions and significant thefts and disappearances.
