According to him, the preparation of the new legislation will bring the current working group, the next one is to meet on Tuesday (January 25). According to him, the free sale of pyrotechnics should be banned.
“If the coalition does not agree on a total ban, we will do our utmost to radically reduce the use of pyrotechnics in protected landscape areas, in national parks in areas with increased animal concentration, but also in agglomerations with a higher concentration of urban or rural population, “” stated for TASR Karahuta.
He considers the current legislative situation to be insufficient. Although the ban on the use of pyrotechnics is regulated by the Act on Explosives, Explosive Objects and Ammunition and through generally binding regulations of towns and municipalities, it does not sufficiently control, depending on what it does not comply with.
“I find it absurd to disregard the ban on the use of pyrotechnics in protected areas and national parks.” he added. The head of the committee emphasized that the uncontrolled use of pyrotechnics has a positive effect on animal and human well-being and the environment, especially in winter.
The non-parliamentary movement Progressive Slovakia calls on the government to ban leisure time for fireworks. It requires that pyrotechnics in categories F2 and F3 be made available only to qualified professionals. The movement has initiated a petition on this request.
