Vietnam relaxes fireworks ban for special occasions

A new decree will allow citizens to use certain types of fireworks for occasions like weddings, birthday parties and Lunar New Year celebrations.

The decree on the management and use of firecrackers and fireworks, set to take effect January 11 next year, will allow people and organizations with full civic rights to use non-explosive firecrackers and fireworks for special occasions.

It defines non-explosive firecrackers and fireworks as those producing sounds, lighting and color effects without causing "explosive sounds," like sparklers.

Explosive firecrackers and fireworks are defined as those that produce explosions (loud noises) and make hissing sounds, like those that are fired into the sky from cannons during certain national celebrations.

Eligible individuals and organizations can only purchase the firecrackers and fireworks from businesses and organizations approved by the Ministry of National Defense and other relevant agencies.

The government had prohibited the production, distribution and use of fireworks and explosive chemicals in 1994 after their rampant use resulted in many deaths, injuries and losses totalling several dozen billion dong (VND10 billion = $430,000) every year.
