Storage of Fireworks Licence

Contact licensing

  • Phone 0141 287 1061

Due to present circumstances, the process for Firework Licence Applications is taking longer than previous years and as a result, as from today 27th October 2020, we cannot guarantee the approval and issue of Licences can be completed by the fireworks season end, up to and including Diwali.

When do I need one?

All traders who intend to store fireworks must be licensed in terms of the Explosives Regulations 2014 on an annual basis.

How much does it cost?

Net explosive quantity of fireworks to be stored:

  • Under 250kg: 
        initial application - £109.00 
        renewal application - £54.00
  • Over 250kg: 
        initial application - £185.00 
        renewal application - £86.00

The application will not be accepted without the correct fee. The fee is non-refundable.
