What Licence Do I Need To Order Nitro Powder?

Quick answer:

You require a Firearm or Shotgun Certificate to purchase Nitro Powder, or be a Registered Firearms Dealer (RFD).

Comprehensive answer:

Smokeless powders (depending on manufacturer and type) are classified as either UN0509 or UN0161, with hazard type 1.3c or 1.4c. This means they are specifically exempt from requiring an Explosives Certificate to own (Explosives Regulations 2014, Schedule 2, S15(a)). Whilst there is no requirement to have an explosives certificate, you must still either be; a Registered Firearms Dealer, or hold a current Firearms or Shotgun Certificate in order to buy smokeless powder (ER2014 Schedule 2 S15(b)(i-iiii). The requirement for the purchaser to be either an RFD, or have a shotgun/firearms certificate is unique to smokeless powders, and this is not sufficient to buy either Black Powder or Triple 7.
