Explosives for civil uses

Directive 2014/28/EU aims mainly to establish a single EU market for trade in explosives for civil uses, to harmonise their safety requirements at a high level of protection and to set up an administrative system to supervise transfers of explosives and ammunition. It sets out rules for the placing on the market and supervision of explosives for civil uses. It does not apply to explosives intended for use by the armed forces or the police, pyrotechnic articles or ammunition (subject to exceptions).
