Billing Code 6355-01-P CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION 16 CFR Parts 1500 and 1507 [Docket No. CPSC-2016-XXXX] Amendments to Fireworks Regulations AGENCY: Consumer Product Safety Commission. ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking. SUMMARY: The Consumer Product Safety Commission (Commission or CPSC) proposes to amend its regulations regarding fireworks devices under the Federal Hazardous Substances Act. The proposed amendments are based on the Commission’s review of its existing fireworks regulations, the current fireworks market, changes in technology, existing fireworks standards, and safety issues associated with fireworks devices. The proposed amendments would create new requirements and modify or clarify existing requirements. Some of the proposed revisions would align with existing fireworks standards or codify the Commission’s existing testing practices. The Commission believes that the proposed requirements would improve consumer safety by codifying limits, test procedures, and requirements that would reduce the risk of injury to consumers and clarifying existing requirements to promote compliance.

ADDRESSES: Comments, identified by Docket No. CPSC-2016-XXXX, may be submitted electronically or in writing: Electronic Submissions: The Commission encourages you to submit electronic comments by using the Federal eRulemaking Portal.
