CCoE – Chief Controller of Explosives

CCOE – Chief Controller of Explosives is the official name of the offices that issue the PESO certification. PESO is the superordinate state institution that implements national laws, but the individual offices are divided into “Chief Controller of Explosives”, “Joint Chief Controller of Explosives”, “Deputy Chief Controller of Explosives”, etc. This somewhat redundant designation comes from the historically used official title of the authorized persons who were allowed to accept a product that is at risk of explosion.

This role has now been institutionalised in the individual offices and is headed by the “Chief Inspector of Explosives”, the head of the Petroleum and Explosives Safety Organisation, which has been issuing the PESO certificate of the same name since 2010.

Are PESO and CCOE – Chief Controller of Explosives synonymous?

PESO describes the authority, but CCoE describes the individual offices of this authority. Thus both terms refer to the same authority. Since, in the end, each office issues the certificates itself, the terms referring to certification are synonymous in practice. Nevertheless, it is correct to speak of a “PESO certificate” and only secondary of a “CCoE approval”.

Which office is responisble for my product?

A total of 27 offices (as of May 2020) of the authority can be found throughout India. Which office is responsible depends on both the geographical location and the product area. Not every office has the same capacities.
