European directive 2007/23/EC on the placing on the market of pyrotechnical articles : are you concerned ?

Abstract : On May 23, 2007 the European Parliament and the Council adopted the Directive 2007/23/EC on the placing on the market of pyrotechnic articles. This newly published text is another piece of the European regulation concerning explosives and pyrotechnic articles. It completes the Directive 93/15/EEC of 5 April 1993 on the harmonisation of the provision relating to the placing on the market and supervision of explosives for civil uses. These two Directives following the "new approach" aim at ensuring the free movement of products within the European Union (EU), improving safety of both consumers and professionals and implementing harmonised safety requirements for such products in all Members States. Thus, the Directive 2007/23/EC applies specifically to pyrotechnic articles and their placing on the EU market, but what are they and how do you know if you are concerned ? As Notified Body and Official Laboratory in France INERIS has gained a lot of experience in testing, certifying and approving explosives and pyrotechnic articles. In this paper we give an insight of the different parts of the Directive 2007/23/EC, we answer the title question and we present the possible frame of the CE marking and certification procedure for pyrotechnic articles.
