Dangerous Goods (Explosives) Regulations 2011

In 2011 Victoria updated the legal requirements for the manufacture, storage, sale, import, transport and use of explosives, with the introduction of the Dangerous Goods (Explosives) Regulations 2011.

Most of the requirements in the 2000 regulations are the same as the 2011 ones. However, some changes improve public safety and security and clarify responsibilities so that the law is easier to understand.

Licence holders can retain licences issued under the Dangerous Goods (Explosives) Regulations 2000 until they expire.
