Storage of explosive substances (storage permit)

In principle, a permit according to the Explosives Act (SprengG) is required for the storage of explosive substances. Authorisation is subject to both

  • the construction and operation of warehouses in which explosive substances are to be stored for commercial purposes, and
  • the material change in the nature or operation of such bearings.

The permit also includes other administrative decisions relating to storage, in particular building regulations.
Approval may be limited in content and subject to conditions where necessary to ensure, in particular, prevention of risks to life, health and property. Subsequent amendment and supplementation of requirements is permitted.

Formless application with the following annexes:

  • List of substances to be stored, indicating the desired amount of storage. For the substances, the storage group and the tolerability group shall be indicated.
  • Floor plan and location plans of the planned storage location.
  • Evidence of the approval of the storage doors used.
