Codes of Practice

In the interests of improving safety and security in the handling of explosives and related materials AEISG develops industry codes of practice which members are required to follow under the AEISG Constitution.

AEISG Codes are developed with both industry (supplier and user) and regulator input to ensure practical and acceptable methods of using and handling explosives. The codes are generally accepted by regulators in most jurisdictions within Australia, however it is important that any potential user of the codes checks their status in a particular jurisdiction.

Some of the AEISG Codes have been adopted into legislation, while others are accepted as ‘approved codes’ by regulators.

AEISG regularly reviews its codes of practice and is always keen to receive constructive comments on improving any of them.

While these codes are, and remain, copyright, AEISG makes them freely available on its website for use by any interested parties.

Members can download more about AEISG’s Codes of Practice by signing into the “Members Section”.
