Rule R710-2

Rules Pursuant to the Utah Fireworks Act

Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 41572
Filed: 05/02/2017 04:23:32 PM


Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

This rule is authorized by Section 53-7-204. Subsection 53-7-204(1)(b)(ii) establishes "safety and other requirements for placement and discharge of display fireworks." The purpose of this rule is to establish the minimum safety standards for retail storage, handling, and sale of class C common state approved explosives, indoor or outdoor; and requirements for licensing of importer, wholesaler, display operator, special effects operator, flame effects operator, and flame effect performing artist.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

This is a long standing rule that is well understood by the industry that it regulates. Industry and the public may address the Fire Prevention Board at any of their regularly scheduled meetings. No one has requested to be on the Board agenda in the last five years. No written communication for or against this rule has been received in the last five years.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

Class C fire works are an explosive used by the public for entertainment. They are dangerous. The Utah State Legislature has tasked the fire prevention board with regulating these explosives. As long as these explosives remain a threat to public safety, it is imperative that they be regulated to ensure a minimum level of safety for the public. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
