Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Department of Justice.

ACTION:

Notice of list of explosive materials.

SUMMARY:

Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 841(d) and 27 CFR 555.23, the Department must publish and revise at least annually in the Federal Register a list of explosives determined to be within the coverage of 18 U.S.C. 841 et. seq. The list covers not only explosives, but also blasting agents and detonators, all of which are defined as explosive materials in 18 U.S.C. 841(c). This notice publishes the 2007 List of Explosive Materials.

DATES:

The list becomes effective upon publication of this notice on December 7, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The list is intended to include any and all mixtures containing any of the materials on the list. Materials constituting blasting agents are marked by an asterisk. While the list is comprehensive, it is not all-inclusive. The fact that an explosive material is not on the list does not mean that it is not within the coverage of the law if it otherwise meets the statutory definitions in 18 U.S.C. 841. Explosive materials are listed alphabetically by their common names followed, where applicable, by chemical names and synonyms in brackets.

The Department has not added any new terms to the list of explosives or removed or revised any listing since its last publication.

This list supersedes the List of Explosive Materials dated September Start Printed Page 6922927, 2006 (Docket No. ATF 19N, 71 FR 56555).
