classification and authorization, general and detailed requirements for Type E explosives /

"This guideline is published in accordance with the Explosives Regulations made under the Explosives Act. It is written in conjunction with the Explosives Regulatory Division (ERD) document titled Authorization and Classification of Explosives, and it specifies the documentation and testing needed for authorization of Type E explosives. In the proposed new explosives regulations, explosives will be also classified by type, according to their intended purpose. High explosives will be referred to Type E explosives, and there will be three sub-types in this group: E.1 - blasting and bulk explosives (explosives used for commercial blasting applications or for their manufacture); E.2 - perforating explosives (intended for use in the oil and gas well industry); E.3 - special-application explosives (high explosives used for other applications, including primary explosives)"--Introd., p. 1.
