You will need this licence if you intend to use more than 3 kg of sensitive ammonium nitrate (SSAN) in a non-explosive application. SSAN is mixtures and emulsions containing more than 45 per cent ammonium nitrate and is generally used in:
- agriculture - common in fertilisers
- research laboratories
The licence covers the purchase, transport, storage and use of SSAN. For agricultural purposes it allows the storage and transport of up to 5000 kg without further justification or the need for a separate transport and storage licence. It also covers the activities for the licence holder on more than one site or location.
