Blasting and shotfiring
You will need a shotfirer licence to use, possess, purchase, store or transport blasting explosives.
Licences specify the type and nature of shotfiring activities that you are allowed to perform.
This guide explains how to apply for a shotfirer licence and your obligations as a licence holder.
It also includes advice to help shotfirers minimise the hazards, noise and vibration from blasting activities.
