Standard Setting Body

The purpose of the Standards Setting Body for Explosives, Munitions & Search Occupations (SSB for EMSO) is to foster competence in the explosives industry through the commissioning and maintenance of nationally accredited standards and qualifications, in particular National Vocational Qualifications. A voluntary, freestanding committee, the SSB seeks to achieve consensus views on competence related matters through consultation with and between stakeholders. The SSB also works closely with a number of other bodies, including the Health & Safety Executive.Do you want to know what the SSSG is, then click on this link.  Read More.
