You can keep up to 50 kg (net) of Hazard Type 4 fireworks for no longer than 21 days without the need for a licence, provided that these are not for sale or for use at work. This is intended to help private individuals and voluntary organisations that wish to organise a larger firework display. (Hazard Type 4 fireworks are the types of less powerful fireworks generally sold at retailers).
If you wish to use the fireworks for a commercial display or for some other work activity, you can keep up to 100kg of hazard type 3 fireworks for up to 5 consecutive days without the need for a licence, provided they are kept in their place of intended use.
If you wish to store a larger quantity of fireworks, or more powerful fireworks then you will need to apply for a licence, within the West Midlands area this is done through us and you can use the button below to see the application process.
