PESO & EXPLOSIVE LICENSE
Petroleum and Explosives Safety Organisation (PESO) is a Government Organization created To regulate and monitor the manufacture, import, export, transport, possession, sale and use of explosives, petroleum products, and compressed gases as envisaged under the Explosives Act 1884 and Petroleum Act 1934.
PESO provides approval / licenses under various Acts/Rules for Explosive/ Petroleum/ Inflammable for various premises/units/ vehicles.
For getting an Explosive License, 2 applications have to be made
1. Application for Approval
2. Grant of License
Documents required for Application for Approval
Documents required for Grant of License
As with several of the other Indian certifications, a foreign company that wants to import its products into India needs a local agent in India (an Authorized Indian Representative – AIR) to apply for and maintain PESO approval. Furthermore, you can only submit such an application once you have a confirmed order.
Ideally, certification can be obtained within a quarter year. However, hardly any project corresponds to the ideal case, because both the novelty of the submitted test reports and the completeness of the documents are points where mistakes can easily occur. It is therefore important to ensure that all documents are clean and up-to-date in order to limit queries from the authorities, which can be very lengthy. Please also note that the authority sometimes has very little time to correct documents, so that in extreme cases the process will have to be restarted.
