I have a bit of a question;when BS7114 is finally abolished come 4th July 2017, will ALL Category 3 CE Fireworks automatically reduce to 15 metres spectators safety viewing distance? This is slightly worrying as powerful Category 3 CE stuff that NEEDS to stay within a 25 metre classification could, potentially, be pushed to 15 metres and possibly put spectators at risk of "standing too close" to them. I know things like large wheels and small stuff that is quite tame will be pushed, and is indeed, being pushed to 15 metres, as the old spec BS7114 Cat 3 display fireworks are slowly being phased out, and new stuff comes in to replace it under the new Cat 3 CE regs, and larger selection boxes with bigger items in them like Bright Star's Imperial and Presidential boxes and the range topping ESCO Mardi Gras (and some selection boxes below those too) could possibly go to 15 metres too.
