Public Prosecution calls on public not to use, deal with display fireworks to ensure public safety.

The Public Prosecution has called upon the public to abide UAE Laws against using fireworks in any way whatsoever in order to ensure public safety and avoid legal accountability.

Pursuant to the Federal Decree Law No 17 of 2019 on arms, ammunition, explosives, military hardware and hazardous material, explosives may consist of a chemically pure compound or a mixture of different chemical compounds that interact with each other when exposed to predisposing factors, such as a stimulating force in the production of pressure and heat at a certain speed that leads to affecting or damaging the surroundings, said the Public Prosecution, noting that display fireworks are considered to be explosive material.

Under the Article 3 of the Federal Decree Law, the acquisition, possession, transport, carriage, manufacturing, and repair of explosives or explosive devices are prohibited without a regulatory approval, added the prosecution.

Under Article 54, any person trading in, importing, exporting, or manufacturing fireworks or getting them into or out of the country without a license, shall be imprisoned for not less than one year and be fined not less than Dh100,000 or either of the said punishments.
