Certain chemicals are defined as “explosives precursors” in the EU, and these chemicals are regulated by the EU Regulation 2019/1148 (the “Regulation”). The Regulation came into effect on 1 February 2021 and replaces the EU Regulation 98/2013.
In modern day society there are numerous chemicals used on a daily basis in a wide variety of industrial processes, professional functions as well as in the large and diverse consumer sector. Chemicals are utilized for many purposes, among others, as intermediates to produce other chemicals and farming activities. The vast majority of these chemicals are traded between businesses for legitimate purposes.
However, some chemicals have the potential to be misused for the illicit manufacture of homemade explosives. Terrorists and other criminals may seek to purchase the precursor ingredients necessary to produce homemade explosives from the open market or divert them from legitimate uses.
The overall aim of the new Regulation is to establish harmonized rules across the EU concerning the acquisition, possession and use of substances or mixtures that could be used for the illicit manufacture of homemade explosives. The introduction of the Regulation also aims to limit the availability of explosives precursors to the general public, and to ensure that appropriate reporting of suspicious transactions throughout the supply chain is introduced.
