Reason For Regulation

Dangerous Goods which are classed as Explosives are materials or items which can rapidly conflagrate or detonate as a consequence of chemical reaction.

Explosives are capable by chemical reaction of producing gases at temperatures, pressures and speeds as to cause catastrophic damage through force and/or of producing otherwise hazardous amounts of heat, light, sound, gas or smoke.
