Statute: 21:1A-132

It is prohibited for any person to manufacture, store, sell, transport, use, dispose of, or possess explosives in any manner except as permitted under this act. Any person who is not engaged primarily in the manufacture, sale, storage, transportation or use of explosives but who in the course of activities engages in any of the above or uses explosives in any manufacturing process shall be required to comply with the provisions of this act. A. No person shall sell, deliver, give away or otherwise dispose of any explosives to any persons not in possession of a permit as required by the provisions of this act. No person shall have any explosives in his possession or control without a permit required by this act. B. Every person holding a permit to manufacture, sell, store or use explosives shall keep such records as may be required by the commissioner, and shall file reports monthly with the commissioner, on a date and in a form to be prescribed by the commissioner, listing amounts of explosives used, sold or otherwise disposed of, during the preceding month and showing inventories on hand, and shall be required to report immediately any loss, by theft or otherwise, of explosives in his possession to the commissioner, who shall immediately forward such information to the Attorney General of the State, provided, however, that where an employer is maintaining such records, his employees holding permits to use explosives, at the discretion of and with the written approval of the commissioner, shall not be required to maintain individual records. Records shall be retained at least until the end of the calendar year next following the year in which the record is made. All such records shall be open to inspection by the commissioner. C. No person shall handle explosives while under the influence of narcotics or intoxicating liquors. D. No person shall smoke or have open lights or fire- or flame-producing devices while handling or using explosives or when within 100 feet of any magazine or vehicle containing explosives; provided, however, that this prohibition shall not apply to the use of igniters when preparing to detonate an explosive charge. E. When deteriorated or leaking explosives are found by the commissioner, he may order them disposed of in the manner he shall direct, at the expense of the possessor. L.1960, c. 55, p. 472, s. 5.
