Regulating explosives during a potential implementation period

The UK is strongly committed to the effective and safe management of explosives. This will not change after Brexit.

HSE’s priority is to maintain an effective regulatory system, which ensures the safe and secure management of civil explosives.

We will also respond to emerging risks and allow trade with the EU that is as frictionless as possible.

Preparations for an implementation period

The UK will no longer be a Member State of the European Union during an implementation period, but market access will continue on current terms.

This means that UK-EU trade will be able to continue on the same terms as now until the end of an implementation period.

If there is no deal

We have produced guidance to help you prepare if the UK leaves the EU without a deal (and therefore without an implementation period).
