Explosives for Civil Uses Directive

The new Civil Uses of Explosives Directive (2014/28/EU) has now been published.


The Explosives for Civil Uses Directive is concerned with the creation of a free market in explosives used for quarry blasting and mining. Explosives for certain other applications (e.g. film and TV special effects) may also be within scope.

A page giving full details of the Directive is currently in preparation. In the meanwhile, please contact us if you have any questions or need assistance with CE marking under this directive.
