Colorado Agency Holding Feb. 14 Public Hearing on Revised Explosives Regulations

The regulations cover permits and the storage, transportation, and use of explosive materials. They would take effect May 1, 2019.

The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment's Division of Oil and Public Safety will hold a public hearing Feb. 14 in Denver on revised explosives regulations that the division has proposed. If approved, the regulations would take effect May 1, 2019.

The proposed regulations cover permits and the storage, transportation, and use of explosive materials, as well as circumstances under which the division would deny, suspend, or revoke a permit; storage magazine types and locations; and even avalanche mitigation.

The regulations state that the division shall deny or revoke and not renew the permit of any person who is currently charged with, has a charge pending, or has been convicted of any of the following offenses:

  • A crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding 1 year
  • A crime involving the illegal distribution of marijuana, any depressant or stimulant drug, or narcotic drug, bomb threats, perjury, fraud, or false swearing, including making a false affidavit or statement under oath to the division in an application or report
  • A crime relating to use, manufacturing, sale, transportation, possession, or disposal of explosives.

They also state that division may revoke and not renew the permit of any person when the violation of any law or regulation relating to explosive material or the misuse of explosive materials results in loss of life or serious injury to any person, and that a permit may be denied, suspended, or revoked by the division because of a number of factors, including unlawful use of or addiction to alcohol, narcotics, or illegal drugs; failure to exercise reasonable safeguards resulting in hazard to life, health, or property; or failure to show legitimate use for a permit.
