Commercial Practices – Petroleum and explosives

Petroleum and explosives

The Trading Standards Service is responsible for petroleum and explosives enforcement. All petrol filling stations in the county borough and businesses which dispense petroleum have to be licensed by the local authority. The licensing process includes approval and testing of the premises’ storage and delivery systems and safe operating practices.

Premises storing explosives, depending on the type and quantity of explosives stored, are subject to either licensing or registration.

Retailers of fireworks are required to register with the local authority. All premises where explosives are stored are inspected by officers of the service to ensure that the conditions imposed by the licence or registration are complied with and that the storage is safe and the business operates in a safe manner.

Among the items controlled are products which contain explosives such as shotgun cartridges, pyrotechnics and fireworks.

For advice please contact Public Protection.
