You will need this licence if you intend to manufacture security sensitive ammonium nitrate (SSAN). A SSAN is a substance that contains more that 45% ammonium nitrate unless it is an explosive or an aqueous solution. Manufacturing includes making the SSAN wholly or partly from another SSAN and packaging a SSAN.
You will not need this licence if you:
- hold an explosives manufacture (MPU) licence
- are a secure employee of the holder of an SSAN Manufacture licence
- control or manage a commercial laboratory, or are employed in a commercial laboratory and you intend to manufacture the SSAN for analytical or research purposes, and there is not more than 3kg of any SSAN in the laboratory
- are employed by an educational institution, government organisation, or are a student at an educational institution and you intend to manufacture the SSAN for educational or research purposes and there is no more than 3kg of any SSAN in the laboratory.
This licence will also authorise you to store a limited quantity of SSAN and supply it to other people who are authorised to possess it. You will need additional licences if you intend to transport, import or export SSAN.
