According to the Explosives Act 1957, fireworks are labelled as ‘explosive devices’ in this law. Those found to be in possession, or manufacturing or importating these explosives can be charged with a fine of RM10,000.00 or imprisonment for a term of 7 years, if not both.

Only two types of fireworks are legal up till now, which are ‘Pop-Pop’ and ‘Happy Boom/Magic Pop’. Other types of fireworks and firecrackers that are deemed to be risky and dangerous have to be submitted for permit and obtain permission or licence from the Ministry of Home Affairs. Don’t worry, the Pop-Pop from our childhood is still safe.

As beautiful and vibrant fireworks may be, we still have to stay safe alright!
