You will need this licence to store authorised explosives, whether at a mine site or other premises. Authorised explosives are explosives that have been deemed as being fit for the purpose of damaging, destroying or demolishing anything.
You will not need this licence if you:
- hold an explosives manufacturing licence
- are authorised to store limited quantities of explosives or fireworks under a shotfiring licence, fireworks event permit or pyrotechnics licence
- transport explosives under an explosives transport licence.
If you intend to store an unauthorised explosive you will instead need to hold a test permit. Special provisions apply to dangerous goods sites that are classified as major hazards facilities (MHF). Please note that the Agency recommends the use of an accredited dangerous goods consultant to prepare and submit your application.
