Guidelines for authorization of consumer and display fireworks: M37-59/2016E-PDF

classification and authorization requirements for types F.1, F.2 and F.4.

"These guidelines have been prepared as a guide to industry and the public. They describe the safety requirements for the design and performance of fireworks. They are published in accordance with Part 3 of the Explosives Regulations, 2013 (ER, 2013) published under the Explosives Act (R.S., c. E-15, s. 1). These guidelines are written in conjunction with the Explosives Regulatory Division (ERD) document titled General Standard for the Authorization and Classification of Explosives and specify the documentation and testing needed for the authorization of cartridges. Some companies experience difficulties in having their products added to the list of authorized explosives. Often this occurs because the process or the intent of the legislation is not fully understood. These guidelines explain the process of authorization and provide the information needed to complete and file a submission"--Introd., p. 4.
