We're responsible for licensing firework storage and checking firework safety to help protect the public when they buy fireworks locally.


Each year during the busy bonfire night period, our trading standards team checks that county retailers are storing fireworks safely and provides them with help and guidance on the laws covering firework sales.

Unfortunately, the short supply period leading up to bonfire night can attract unauthorised firework dealers into the marketplace.

These temporary traders - often with tempting prices - will not have been checked by our officers, giving a greater possibility of fire and explosion risk to members of the public on premises or in nearby buildings.

Unchecked dealers can also mean unchecked fireworks. So there is an increased risk of buying illegal or unsafe fireworks from these sources.

Where to buy fireworks in Derbyshire
