    Sec. 5013. Variations.
    (a) Emergency variations. The Department may approve variations from the requirements of this Act when it finds that an emergency exists and that the proposed variations from the specific requirements are necessary, will not hinder the effective administration of this Act, and will not be contrary to any provisions of any other applicable law.
    (b) Other variations. The Director may authorize alternate construction for explosives storage magazines when it is shown that the alternate magazine construction is substantially equivalent to the standards of safety and security required under this Act or the Department's rules. Any person intending to use alternate magazine construction shall submit a letter application to the Director, specifically describing the proposed magazine. Explosive materials may not be stored in alternate magazines before the applicant has been notified that the application has been approved.
