Start Supplemental Information
On February 2, 2017, the Commission published an NPR in the Federal Register, proposing amendments to the fireworks regulations in 16 CFR parts 1500 and 1507, under the authority of the Federal Hazardous Substances Act (15 U.S.C. 1261-1278). 82 FR 9012. The NPR provided a 75-day comment period, which will close on April 18, 2017. The National Fireworks Association has requested that the Commission extend the comment period an additional 90 days, in light of the broad scope of the amendments proposed in the NPR, the complex and highly-technical nature of the proposed amendments, and the potential impact on industry members.
The Commission grants this request, extending the comment period for an additional 90 days, until July 17, 2017.
