After over 2 month I finally got my EPP licence throught the post. This was after being held to ransom by my GP (£150 for the sanity check)
With great anticipation I put in an order for Potassium Perchlorate(one of the items on my EPP)
I then find the law says that I have to appear in person in front of the supplier with the ID I used on the EPP application. I live in the SW of England and do not know of any local suppliers.
At no point in my research on the EPP application process was I made aware of this restriction. It may be on the gov web site, if it is I didn't see it.
One supplier was prepared to sell if I sent my EPP AND ID by registered post - they would then return this after a few days with the chems.
MY ID is my passport, which as I still work occasionally, I can need at very short notice. I'm prepared to send my passport registered post to the passport office but would have to think long and hard before sending it elsewhere.
It seems that I have spent £200 on a licence that is worthless to me.
I'll maybe have to take up knitting if there isn't a requirement for a licence to buy the needles!
A very disappointed pryo enthusiast (maybe that is now ex enthusiast)
