You will require this permit if you intend to handle unauthorised explosives. A register is kept of all authorised explosives in Tasmania. The register defines and classifies all the explosives permitted for use. An unauthorised explosive is one not currently on the register. Applicants must therefore apply for approval to use an unauthorised explosive.
In considering an application, the Authority must be satisfied that the explosive:
- has or could have a legitimate use in Tasmania
- should be available for or tested for such use
- can, with appropriate safeguards, be safely handled.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
