OK decided to take the plunge. I have a couple of questions with regards to the form and procedure.
1: Do I need to get / make a storage box before I submit the application? What I mean is I have no idea of what to expect in the way of timescale. If I send the application would the ELO be wanting to come round quickly or is this likely to take months? and will I need to have a storage box ready for him to inspect there and then?
2: PART C, 6 If you have never had any certificate, please detail your experience in the use and handling of explosives. I think I've touched on this before in previous posts and been advised "just be honest". I accept this comment and intend to be but how have other applicants worded this without making it sound to incriminating? like "I've been making fireworks all my life but now I have a chance to do it legally that's what I want to do"
3: Part E,10 Date on which / between which the explosives certificate is required. Do I leave this blank? I mean Its from whenever they decide to issue it until it ends right? (maximum 5 years) according to the form.
Also under the previous paragraph. Explosives required: Just UN0027 and UN0028 Blackpowder? or do I need to write 100g (or less) explosives and pyrotechnics in accordance with MSER2005 reg 9 (2) (a) ? as I've given this as the "purpose for which the explosives are required" in the above box.
I think that's pretty much it as the rest is straight forward as I know my own name and address
