European directive 2013/29/EU and person with specialist knowledge

Abstract : On June 12, 2013 the European Parliament and the Council adopted the Directive 2013/29/EU [1] on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to the making available on the market of pyrotechnic articles. Although this Directive lays down principally rules on the accreditation of conformity assessment bodies, on the framework for the market surveillance of products and for controls on products from third countries, and on the general principles of the CE marking, it also requires identification and authorisation of what is called ‘person with specialist knowledge’ to handle and/or use of certain categories of articles. These categories, defined in the Directive, are category F4 fireworks, category T2 theatrical pyrotechnic articles and category P2 other pyrotechnic articles which concerns pyrotechnics usually known as articles for professional uses. The process of identification and authorisation is remained in the hands of each European Member States. We give in this paper example of the type of pyrotechnic articles concerned by these categories and we present the different approaches followed by the Member States for the identification, authorisation and training of person with specialist knowledge on their territories.
