Watching fireworks is popular and fun. But fireworks are explosives and burn at high temperatures, so they need careful handling and storage.


That is why there are laws in place to govern the use and possession of fireworks, and how they are stored and sold.


New legislation has been introduced (see below) to help to make fireworks safer to use and to tackle their deliberate misuse. It affects how fireworks are imported, sold and used, and places restrictions on possession.


It means that fireworks will be safer, less noisy and can only be let off at certain times. It also means that those misusing them to either damage property or injure will be able to be dealt with by the relevant authorities.


Consumers, along with retailers, have new responsibilities.
