Obligations on importers, distributors and manufacturers of fireworks
As an importer, distributor or manufacturer of fireworks and other pyrotechnic articles within the EU, you must ensure that your products are in accordance with the existing regulatory requirements for fireworks before you can market and distribute the articles.
This means that your product must be assessed by a notified body like FORCE Certification A/S and must be certified before further distribution. FORCE Certification A/S is a notified body in the modules B, C and E.
You can start your application process by filling in the below forms and sending them to us.
