Draft NSW Explosives Regulation 2021

DATE: August 2021
AUTHOR: SIFA

Executive Summary

Propellant powder should be removed from the remade explosive regulations (for both firearms dealers and firearm license holders).

Failing that,

  1. In the absence of any credible data to suggest otherwise, the limit per household needs to be increased to a level which is consistent with recognised risk thresholds such as UN agreements and safety data sheets.
  2. The implementation of revised domestic powder limits must be deferred until the completion of the DG code maintenance project, and until regulations around commercial distribution of powders are improved to the point where retail supply is no longer an issue.
  3. The regulator needs to set out the transitionary or compensatory arrangements where current household holdings exceed 12kg.
