There are ALLOT of legal issues behind that. I have to assume to people who buy those chemical build fireworks in a legal manner (If you don't, please don't use the forum to advertise this fact!!!), but I suspect that HSE and other regulators will ask the question at some point. When that happens, I doubt if the society will want to be a part of the scene. From my personal prospective, the first step is to get exemptions for the hobbyist community, and when you get a legal status, worry about the suppliers.

(Please don't start discussion about the law following this post. I post it here to explain the problems about allowing trade on the forum. Legal issues should be discussed in the law thread.)


Just wondering - does anyone have a rough idea how many licensed explosive factories there are in the UK (that manufacture pyrotechnic items?) I can't imagine there are very many at all.

I believe Kimbolton are the only UK fireworks manufacturer, although there are stage pyrotechnics companies here that may produce.

Don't be ridicules. I know of at least 12 that have licenses, and there are probably quite a few more. They just don't manufacture cat 3. That's all.

I believe there is one in Devon, Uffculme I think. There was a big news story a few years ago when there was a huge fire in the storage facilities. It caused the big changes in th laws regarding how fireworks are to be stored. Does anyone know if this factoy is still in operation?

No one is being ridiculous, that was what I was told and so I believed it.

Good thinking - never thought of looking there!
Just had a quick look - it lists 11 "manufacturers". More than I thought there would be actually!

There are more factory licenses out there than you would imagine... not all of them advertise.

Anyone had any contact with our norwegian comrade here, i sent him a PM about 10 days ago, but no reply. I hope the mods haven't discouraged him to open an online store (no offense meant mods)
