You must be aged 18 or over to buy fireworks.
Fireworks can only be sold or displayed for the period beginning 2 November and ending at the close of 5 November.
In response to concerns about people bundling sparklers together to make sparkler bombs, there are restrictions in place:
- sparklers can't be sold separately
- sparklers can be sold only in packages containing at least three other fireworks
- no more than 50 sparklers can be sold in any one package of fireworks
Worksafe are responsible for enforcing and monitoring the sale, handling and storage of fireworks.
