Importing and authorising explosives

News December 2022: Updates to Regulations

The new Explosives Regulations 2022 include amendments relating to shot-firers, record keeping requirements, and Cracker Night in Tasmania. See full details about the remade Explosives Regulations.

Importing explosives

To import explosives, you must notify WorkSafe Tasmania of all explosive import/export consignments, including those by air, at least 7 days before transport.

Do this by submitting the Explosives Import/Export Record application form (PDF, 904.3 KB) to WorkSafe Tasmania.

Specific safety requirements apply to ports. These are detailed in Regulation 29 of the Explosives Regulations 2012 and require you to also need a Security Sensitive Dangerous Substances permit from WorkSafe Tasmania.

Authorising explosives

Unless WorkSafe Tasmania has granted you an exemption, you must not handle explosives that have not been authorised.

Submit the Application for authorisation of an explosive form to WorkSafe Tasmania.
