Change in law

The law on non-medical poisons changed on 1 March 2015.

Businesses that sell or supply certain chemicals that can be used in the unlawful manufacture of explosives or to cause harm no longer need to be registered with Blackpool Council. 

Sellers must comply with regulations under The Poisons Act 1972 and report suspicious transactions and significant losses and thefts to the Home Office.
