You will require an explosive manufacture (mobile processing unit) licence if you are a prime contractor and intend to transport a constituent of a bulk Ammonium Nitrate (AN) based explosive in a mobile processing unit (MPU) on a road or in a mine. Bulk AN-based explosives consist mainly of ammonium nitrate, which are not packaged in the form of a cartridge, plug or stick. Holding this licence does not require you to hold an Explosive Manufacture Licence.
There is no limit on the number of MPUs that may be included for this licence although each vehicle must be a complying MPU. This licence will also authorise you supply a limited amount of explosives to another person without the need to obtain an Explosive Supply Licence provided certain requirements are met.
Please note that the Agency strongly advise you to contact an approved consultant and work with them to have your application developed. The consultant may lodge your application on your behalf.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
