Safer storage of ammonium nitrate in NSW

Have your say on safety measures for ammonium nitrate storage facilities

The NSW Government is proposing safety measures that will strengthen the current regulation of ammonium nitrate storage. The measures would provide additional protections for workers and communities near ammonium nitrate storage facilities.

The NSW Government proposes to only licence facilities to store ammonium nitrate if they comply with standard separation distances from populated areas and infrastructure.

Give your feedback on:

  • mandatory separation distances for the storage of ammonium nitrate
  • suitable timeframes for ammonium nitrate storage facilities to implement the separation distances
  • potential community and industry benefits and disadvantages of the proposed changes.

This discussion paper has more details.
