Licences and registrations
If you plan to keep explosives such as fireworks, safety cartridges or vehicle airbag detonators you will need an explosives licence.
If you intend to supply fireworks all year round you will need a fireworks licence in addition to an explosives licence.
If you store petrol in a tank or bowser for delivery into the fuel tank of a vehicle or other internal combustion engine you will need a petroleum licence.
There is no longer a requirement to register with us in order to sell non-medicinal poisons. Members of the public wanting to acquire or import certain chemicals must apply for an Explosives Precursors and Poisons [EPP] Licence from the GOV.UK website.
The Performing Animals (Regulation) Act 1925 requires that if you exhibit or train animals for public performance, you must register with your local authority. You will need a Performing Animals Certificate of Registration.
