The Falkland Islands Government is consulting on the proposed changes to the Dangerous Goods Ordinance. This piece of legislation aims to regulate hazardous or dangerous goods in the Falkland Islands, through understanding what quantities exist, where they are situated and whether the storage arrangements for those goods are adequate.While there is existing legislation, it has been determined that it doesn't provide sufficient regulation and, that in the event of a major incident; it is likely that emergency services and members of the public could be subject to significant risk of harm.

The specific aspects FIG is seeking the public's views on are:

  • The proposed system which involves either a notification requirement or licensing requirement for the possession, manufacture, processing, transporting and/or use of dangerous goods
  • The proposed thresholds for domestic and non-domestic properties, which determine if a notification or full licensing requirement is necessary

We are especially keen to hear from members of the rural and business communities, as these sectors are more likely to be involved in the handling and storage of materials which are classified as dangerous goods.
