Explosives regulations: Have your say

This is an opportunity for individuals, businesses and industries that import, manufacture, transport, store, supply, use and export explosives to provide information on any issues that regulatory variations across jurisdictions may raise, including the nature and extent of the impact of such issues on them.

The public comment period is open until 10 September 2015. Submissions close at 5.30 pm AEST, Thursday 10 September 2015. To have your say on the Explosives Regulation in Australia: Discussion Paper and Consultation Regulation Impact Statement, go to
