Information notice: updated national legislation around pellets as an explosive
Hodgdon triple seven powder and pellets are not exempt under Schedule 2 of the Explosive Regulations.
This means that any registered firearm dealer selling this product needs to ensure that they have an Explosive Acquire and Keep (A&K) certificate with the UN numbers of 0499 or 0501 listed.
If you already have this certificate but do not have the UN numbers listed on it, please return your Acquire and Keep certificate to the Firearms and Explosives Licensing Unit for amendment. There is no fee for this work.
For any customer purchasing Hodgdon triple seven powder and pellets, please ensure that you have a valid Explosives Acquire and Keep (A&K) certificate with the UN0499 and 0501 listed on it, which the registered firearm dealer will check. If you do not have an A&K certificate please apply to your local police force.
For anyone who already has an A&K certificate, please return your certificate for amendment, detailing why you have returned it.
