Know the rules
Moving explosives on the road is covered by a raft of Health and Safety legislation. Explosives must be transported in compliance with Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations 2009. There are exemptions and derogations to these Regulations, which can apply in certain circumstances and the Department for Transport’s Dangerous goods guidelines.
You will also need to comply with the Modal Transport Regulations, which cover both national and international movement of explosives by road, rail, air, inland waterways, and sea. Before you can think about van insurance for explosive materials, you will need to make sure that you comply fully with all legislation regarding the movement of explosive and hazardous materials on the road.
