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.
If you have more general comments then please send them to me (email@example.com) AND Roger Tanfield (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly
Agreement has been reached between the Forum and the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) to rewrite the Event Safety Guide – better known as the Purple Guide.
While the new guide will not be as comprehensive as the original, focusing mainly on health and safety at events, the EIF is committed to plugging any gaps by producing a series of additional guidances and bringing all these together on one website as a ‘virtual’ guide to event organization.
Currently a Steering Group is being set up with the HSE to direct the project and Working Groups are being put together to draft the different sections. Although some changes may be made in the structure of the new Guide, it is anticipated that this will be much the same as the previous Purple Guide.
The intention is that the process of rewriting the Guide should be as transparent as possible. In order to achieve this progress reports and drafts of each chapter will be available for comment via the EIF website. Alerts will also be sent out to those registering an interest whenever changes are made to a section.
It is, therefore, important that you register your interests as soon as possible.

Please click here to download an invitation to the HSE classification workshop to be held at Centrepoint, London on 29th January 2009 – starting at 10.30.
The workshop is primarily intended for firework importers and manufacturers who classify using the "default" – but may also be of interest to others in the pyrotechnics area.
