Perforating Gun Approvals
ATF Licenses & Permits
- Did you know that perforating guns must be marked and labeled, just like any other
- Did you know that all explosives, including perforating guns, must be
marked with an EX-number assigned by U.S. Department of Transportation (49 CFR 172.320)?
Meeting these requirements with perforating guns can be difficult due to odd
configurations, uneven surfaces, etc. The OCS
GunTag is the simple, one-step answer.

Gun Approvals (Updated
Perforating guns, like all other
explosives, must be approved by DOT before they can be transported
or offered for transport. DOT has advised that they expect
each company that loads
perforating guns to obtain their own approval(s) rather than
using a generic approval as has been the practice in the past
a separate approval must be
obtained for each gun system to be loaded.
Normally, testing under the UN
test series and a review by DOT is required prior to issuance of
the approval. This can be a time-consuming and expensive
endeavor, and realizing that, DOT, working with the Association of
Energy Service Contractors (AESC) and the Institute of Makers of
Explosives (IME), has approved a new system for obtaining
perforating gun approvals. This system involves the use of
previously examined and approved specifications for gun systems
and does not require any testing
