Manufacture, Transportation, and Storage of Fireworks and Py



Renamed and approved as an American National Standard, NFPA 1124: Code for the Manufacture, Transportation, and Storage of Fireworks and Pyrotechnic Articles has vital requirements for fireworks manufacturing and transportation safety.

The 2017 edition of NFPA 1124 establishes fire and life safety requirements for the manufacture, transportation, and storage of fireworks, pyrotechnic articles, and any components containing pyrotechnic or explosive compositions.

Major changes to the Code's scope are based on a landmark decision by the NFPA® Standards Council.

This edition of NFPA 1124 does not apply to the retail sales, associated storage, or the use of consumer fireworks by the general public. Related requirements have been removed, and the consumer fireworks storage requirements in manufacturing facilities have been relocated to Chapter 5: Storage.

NFPA 1124 offers critical requirements for fireworks manufacturing operations including:

  • Record keeping
  • Site security
  • Construction
  • Fire and explosion prevention
  • Emergency plans
  • Testing

The Code is essential for architects, manufacturers, transportation authorities, AHJs, and anyone responsible for fire and explosion safety around fireworks and pyrotechnics. (Softbound, 52 pp., 2017)
