Explosives Regulations 2014 (ER 14)
As the explosives licensing authority, Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) is informing future applicants who wish to store pyrotechnic articles of the change in the law and how it affects them, as potential duty holders of a fireworks storage licence.
The new Explosives Regulations 2014 (ER14) came into force on 1 October 2014 and consolidate and revoke a number of existing explosives regulations. ER14 brings together the requirements of health and safety related explosives legislation into a framework based around common topics and merges registrations into the licensing system.
It is important to note that this authority requires 28 days notice to supply such a licence.
