Deposit of industrial explosives

Standard CAN/BNQ 2910-500
Explosives — Magazines for Industrial Explosives

When explosives are stored, every effort must be made so that they do not present any hazard for people in the vicinity. It is also important to ensure that magazines for explosives are well designed against theft, with the goal of preventing the use of explosives for criminal or terrorist purposes.

Industrial explosives are high-risk explosives. They are mainly used in the mining industry, quarry operations, the construction industry, and even for national defence and police services. To respond to the safety imperatives associated with storage of these explosives, the BNQ has developed standard CAN/BNQ 2910-500.

The main objective of Canada’s new national standard entitled Explosives — Magazines for Industrial Explosives is to specify the minimum requirements for constructing and monitoring magazines used for safe and hazard-free storage of industrial explosives.

This standard is intended to serve as a guide for all stakeholders engaged in planning the use and construction of magazines for industrial explosives who hold a licence issued under the Canadian Explosives Act and the Canadian Explosives Regulations, 2013 and other regulations in force.
