Hi all, just a quick quesiton about the QLD explosive license and the storage of high black powder and motors.

I have seen Blake selling the bright orange danger explosives signs and i have had a poke around on the explosive inspectorate website but I cant find where it says what sign you need , how big it should be etc.

Does anyone know if you need them and if so what type?

Thanks,

Adam

Adam
The Qld Licence to Use Explosives for the purpose of Hobby rocket motors over 62.5 grams has the condition ' . . Restricted to store no more than 15kg of HP Rocket Motors and Propellants. . . ' (that's the TOTAL amount of combined BP and HP motors).

The reason for the limit on 15kg is that legislation requires an additional Licence to Store Explosives above the 15kg amount that is covered by the Licence to Use explosives.

A Hazard Classification Sign (HCC placard/label - the 'orange' diamond') is ONLY required for amounts above 15kg.
No need to worry about it when you keep to the licence condition of not more than 15kg.

Thanks Bruce,

I've been looking all over for something like that. I saw that Blake sold the signs so I was under the impression if I got my licence I would need them but apparently not.

Cheers,

The explosive diamond stickers might not be mandatory, but they do make my boring old motor storage box look a lot sexier. Kind of like vinyl decals on a rocket.

Looks way too professional Mike 8)

I bought some of those stickers, then the kids stuck them all over the place.

"All rocket motors and propellant must be retained in their original packaging. They are to be transported and stored in resealable nonsparking
containers, away from open flames and sources of heat. Reloadable motor kits must remain packaged until immediately prior to
use. They must only to be assembled at the launch site preparation area."

"Black powder must be transported and stored in a wooden container, and must be secured to prevent access by unauthorised persons.
Licence holders can store up to a combined quantity of 15kg nette explosive quantity (NEQ) of single use motors, reloadable kits and black
powder."

It would seem that rather than having one box for propellant and one box for black powder that a single wooden box for everything would be the go...

Or, LOL, you could have a smaller wooden box inside a larger 'nonsparking' box...

Or, one wooden box for BP and one nonsparking box for propellant...

Or - take up knitting :shock:

*meh* but what do I know, this was the only question I got wrong on my L2 exam :roll:
