A person must not hold a fireworks display unless they hold a relevant fireworks display permit.

Applications for a fireworks display permit will still need to be lodged at Service Tasmania, using the approved form. It will continue to be the applicant’s responsibility to ensure the information provided is true and correct, and existing penalties will continue to apply.

If the applicant is a corporation, the requirement to nominate a responsible adult and an alternative responsible adult will remain unchanged. However, these responsible adults will need to be considered ‘fit and proper’ persons as defined by Schedule 4 of the Explosives Regulations 2012.

Applications will still need to be lodged at least 21 clear days before the date of the proposed fireworks display, and the prescribed application fee (50 fee units for a Type 2 display, currently $77.50) will remain unchanged.
