Hello everyone! I am having a few issues with finding out if there are legal limits on the amount of consumer fireworks you can have in a household. I also can't find any information if there are legal limits of black powder, flash powder, and other types of chemicals you can have. I'm sure there are legal limits, if you have any information, please let me know, also if there is a website I can look at, that will help a lot!

Retail Ireland

Consumers may hold any quantity of 1.4G fireworks for personal use for up to 21 days; if this includes 1.3G fireworks, the time limit is only three days. If storing for longer periods, a license is required if storing more than 5kg NEC.

The legal limits for consumer fireworks does seem a little low. It may be enough for my family but we tend to hold a small event for our neighbours too and the limits put in place by this legislation seems to forbid anything of the sort!

I think making the distinction between black powder and fireworks can make a big difference. It's obvious that the restrictions are put in place for safety, but I think they are a little too tight :(
