RoSPA Safer Fireworks

RoSPA Firework Resources

RoSPA supports the development of a UK wide Fireworks Display Registration Scheme. RoSPA does not support the call for a complete ban on the sale of fireworks to the public. A ban would be likely to encourage the manufacture of fireworks at home, the import of fireworks by the public travelling abroad and a black market for fireworks.
