Stringent criteria apply to the transport of explosives to ensure people transporting explosives do so without creating an unacceptable risk to the community.

This guidance note assists in identifying the regulatory requirements for the transport of explosives in Western Australia on both public roads and mine sites. The information is derived from requirements specified in the Dangerous Goods Safety Act 2004 (the Act), the Dangerous Goods Safety (Explosives) Regulations 2007 (the Explosives Regulations) and the Australian Code for the Transport of Explosives by Road and Rail, Third Edition, 2009, which is more commonly known as the “Australian Explosives Code” (AEC). Operators of mine sites should also be aware of the requirements of the Mines Safety and Inspection Act 1994 and associated regulations that may apply.
