Background

Following the postponement of the Commission Directive 2008/43/EC’s implementation on a system for the identification and traceability of explosives for civil uses amended on 2012/4/EU, manufacturers and importers have the obligation to mark explosives by 5th April 2013 and the whole supply chain to keep on data collection and record by 5th April 2015.

The main issue is to have an unique harmonized code for the whole supply chain and be ready in time for the implementation of the Directive.

 

Objectives

  • The Task Force on Explosives for civil uses was created to support full and proper implementation of the Directive by all stakeholders within the deadline.
  • The work of this Task Force has been to produce an on-going action plan endorsed by the European Commission and Member States, to identify the various challenges connected with implementation of the Directive, and to draft a guidance document on Track & Trace aimed at informing the whole supply chain.
