is it ok to do that?
You can buy loaded BP cartridges on a normal shotgun cert !

No, your friend would need a Black Powder Licence too.

The simple solution is to load the blackpowder cartridges for him and simply give him loaded cartridges. There should be nothing wrong with that.

Absolutely right if its loose powder however;

Once black powder is in an "article" such as a firework or shotgun cartridge then it is subject to the rules for those items. in the case of a firework the fireworks laws on age etc and for shotgun ammo a shotgun cert must be produced upon purchase of cartridges.

It is only when you remove the black powder and holds it loose that you require an explosives certificate.
