A One Day Course Product Safety – Regulatory Affairs

FIREWORK SAFETY – EXPLOSIVES REGULATIONS 2014 INSPECTIONS AND PYROTECHNIC ARTICLES (SAFETY) REGULATIONS 2015

Warwick, Thursday 21st September 2017 

This one day workshop has been jointly arranged by CEnTSA and Food and Farming Compliance Ltd. to provide advice and training involving practical problem solving sessions on the Pyrotechnic Articles (Safety) Regulations 2015 and the responsibilities placed on market surveillance authorities.
In the UK Fireworks is still a significant market, particular for the Autumn season but increasingly year round for other celebrations. Trading Standards Officers are responsible for the safe storage of the product as well as the sale and composition of pyrotechnics.  Trading Standards Professionals act as Health and Safety at Work Act inspectors in relation to the storage of fireworks which is a very different responsibly to that of market surveillance and investigation. 
Until 2012 Fireworks were regulated under domestic legislation but since then the European dimension has taken over and such products are now part of the free market in goods.  As such the focus of regulation and approval has moved from product approval to EU-type approval with notified body involvement in internal production control, from the design stage, through process to the end product.  This presents significant challenges to market surveillance officers in terms of their ability to ensure that manufacturers and importers are fulfilling their obligations for this high risk product.
