||This article discusses safety issues associated with the storage of fertilizer grades of ammonium nitrate (AN), with a focus on low storage capacity premises. The information is based on a literature review on hazardous properties of AN and AN-based fertilizers, a review of accidents involving relatively small quantities of AN-based fertilizers, an examination of both the relevant regulatory framework and the level of hazard control achieved, and finally on an analysis of the economical, technical and organizational factors that could lead to an underestimation of the risk compared to large scale storage facilities.
