You will require this permit if you intend to test a non-authorised explosive. A non-authorised explosive is an article or substance that is neither an authorised explosive, nor a prohibited explosive and that is intended to be manufactured or used to produce an explosion or a pyrotechnic effect.
You will also require a test permit if you intend to import, manufacture or store an unauthorised explosive, in addition to the relevant permit for that particular activity. The testing of authorised explosives and fireworks does not require a permit.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
