I sent off for an RCA last week, by email. I haven't got any response yet.
I used the rocketstore template and filled it in, and double-checked for mistakes.
So, how long does this process normally take? Should I have got a response by now, or will it take longer, a month or so?
EDIT: I used this email address: explosives.licencing@hse.gsi.gov.uk.

What's an RCA? It sounds like a British explosives permit, but I'm only guessing at this point.

4 - 6 weeks, although mine came in in under 2 weeks

Stands for Recipient Competent Authority. Most smaller AP here is licence free to purchase, but we need an RCA to legally be able to move it anywhere, even from a vendor at the field to the pad.

Thanks for the explanation WiK.

Have you guys found any headway due the the ATF case over here?
I know the laws are totally different as Apples to Oranges, but you never know....
