Do You Buy Nitro Methane Based Fuel?
If So, It’s IMPORTANT That You Read Below.
A New European Union Regulation on Explosives Precursors comes into effect in Northern Ireland on 2 September 2014. A precursor is any everyday chemical that can be used in the preparation of an explosive device. Nitro Methane falls into this category.
The regulation states that sales of nitro methane above a concentration of 30% by weight must be control. This is equivalent to a concentration of 23% by volume. This may affect you if you buy Nitro Methane based fuels, as a licence will be required for anyone wishing to purchase Nitro Methane based fuels above a concentration of 23% by volume.
If you need to apply for a licence, further guidance will shortly be available on our website at www.gov.uk/nio. If you have any other queries please contact us on email@example.com
Licences will cost £35 and will be valid for 3 years.
After 2 September 2014, you will not be allowed to buy Nitro Methane based fuels above 23% vol. without a valid licence.
