With the adoptionof the Carriage of Explosives (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2012, this guide brings to a satisfactory conclusion a long period of negotiation and sustained work by EIG, to bring about such a significant change in Explosives Legislation – the effort to achieve which has been very worthwhile, given the forthcoming and anticipated benefits to all EIG Members affected by the explosives classification processes.

CDG 2011 has at last been signed by the authorised DfT Minister and placed on the Floor of the House, to come into force on 24th October 2011.  A copy of the regulations are now available on the OPSI website.

With the laying of these Regulations before Parliament, it brings to a satisfactory conclusion a long period of negotiation and sustained work by EIG, to bring about such a significant change in Explosives Legislation – the effort to achieve which has been very worthwhile, given the forthcoming and anticipated benefits to all EIG Members affected by the explosives classification processes.

The Drafts for CEN Enquiry for theatrical pyrotechnic articles are available as BSI Drafts for Public Comment on e-committees. The drafts are also available to view and comment online via the BSI Draft Review System. Anyone can view and comment on the online versions by logging onto the system (after registering on the first visit). The links, which you may forward to any interested parties, are as follows.

The public comment period for these drafts ends on 30 June 2011 but I hope that any important issues will be raised much earlier, so that they can be discussed at the CII/47 meetings arranged for 10 May 2011 (at CBI) and 21 June 2011.
