Pyrotechnic articles (Safety) Regulations 2015: implementation of EU directives

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills are seeking views on proposed changes to the pyrotechnic regulations in order to implement 2 EU directives. The Directives impose new obligations on manufacturers, importers and distributors of pyrotechnic articles. They also make detailed provision concerning the bodies which are entitled to carry out conformity assessments, and the market surveillance regime.

In response, ACS calls for clarity on the burdens that retailers will face under the proposed new rules, including new obligations on retailers selling fireworks, and record keeping requirements.
