Ammonium Nitrate Safety & Security

Ammonium Nitrate is valuable as a fertilizer for the production of healthy food in Canada, but it must also be handled with care. The Ammonium Nitrate Code of Practice provides a tool for operators of ammonium nitrate storing and handling facilities to assess and manage their security risks. Canadian fertilizer agri-retailers who sell ammonium nitrate can now provide their employees with the training and information to assist in complying with the federal security regulations and the industry Code of Practice.
