Legal Information for Fireworks Pyrotechnics
According to federal law, consumer fireworks, or DOT 1.4G fireworks, are legal. Classified "consumer fireworks" are tested by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and meet specific requirements with regard to composition, the quantity of pyrotechnic material, and the stability of the product under head and stress. Once classified as "consumer fireworks" by the CPSC, the item is legal under Federal law for consumer use. Commercial (display) fireworks that do not meet this certification and require a Federal license to purchase and use them.
Fireworks by Donnora only sells consumer fireworks (Class C or DOT 1.4G) certified by the CPSC for consumer use. Because federal law applies to interstate commerce, we can legally ship fireworks anywhere in the United States. However, certain State and local ordinances ban the use of fireworks if you do not possess a permit to own and/or store fireworks. As a result, the responsibility for complying with State and local laws falls upon you (the buyer).
We only ship via UPS Ground items de-regulated by the US DOT. All other fireworks must be shipped by a hazardous materials trucking firm in large quantities at an additional cost.
Fireworks by Tony Donnora Inc. encourages everyone to follow all State and local laws with regard to obtaining fireworks legally. If you want to change the laws in your state, we suggest lobbying your State and local officials to change outdated fireworks laws and regulations.
