This report presents the different types of explosives. It presents a classification of explosives according to their sensitivity to external influences, as well as a classification of the permissible quantities of explosives, ammunition and pyrotechnic articles that can be safely stored in one room. An analysis was performed and the possibility of safely combined storage of explosives and ammunition was considered. The need of applying specific requirements for the design and exploitation of sites for the production, storage and trade of explosives, ammunition and pyrotechnic articles is described.
