The Australasian Explosives Industry Safety Group (AEISG) is pleased to announce that a new Code of Practice, ‘Import of Explosives’ has been released, and is available on this website. Go to the Code of Practices section to download this new code. AEISG Codes of Practice (CoP) are developed in the interests of improving safety and security in the handling of explosives and related materials, which members are required to follow under the AEISG constitution. AEISG CoP are developed with both industry (supplier and user) and regulator input to ensure practical and acceptable methods of using and handling explosives.
Following continued submissions by AEISG, the UN Committee of Experts has agreed to include new entries for Electronic Detonators in the International Model Regulations.
