Breakfast forum: The regulatory control of commercial explosives, Hong Kong

About this event

In Hong Kong, explosives are classified as Category 1 dangerous goods under the Dangerous Goods Ordinance (Cap 295) and the manufacture, transport, storage and use of explosives is controlled under the law. Although civil engineers may commonly associate commercial explosives with rock blasting, the term ‘explosives’ actually covers a wide range of articles, including fireworks, ammunition, distress flares, and safety and security devices. As dangerous goods, safety and increasingly the security of all types of explosives are of paramount concern. Ignorance of safety requirements, as well as complacency or negligence, can result in very serious incidents. The presentation aims to provide basic information relating to the regulatory control of explosives in Hong Kong, how the local regime fits in with international requirements on the classification, testing, transport and storage of explosives, and the lessons that can be learnt from controlled tests and accidents involving explosives.
