I've recently been notified that the EU are proposing an outright ban on Potassium Chlorate/Perchlorate (amongst other non-pyro chemicals) to members of the public. This is currently going through consultation throughout the EU member states. See details of this attached.
The home office are conducting the consultation within the UK and I have already been in discussion to emphasise the devastating impact this would make to pyro experimentation. They understand our concerns and would like to hear how other EU pyro experimenters are handling these proposals. So, if you are outside the UK and experiment with pyrotechnics (and are concerned about losing the access to KCLO3/4), please can you get in touch and let me know how your local pyro clubs/authorities are handling these proposals. Any solidarity we can get with this will be beneficial for all.
Hope to hear from someone out there in europe!
