Since it came in of the period of the 70's it has never taken account of bigger more powerful fireworks that have come and gone over the years and since the introduction of BS7114 in 1988 has never been adapted for the two categories of outdoor fireworks in Cat 2 5m Garden Class and Cat 3 25m Display Class and now we have European Standards coming in and superseding BS7114 in 2017, things still have never really changed. It still assumes consumer fireworks are small and in selection boxes and still available small size in separates, when that isn't the truth at all. It has never taken account of safety distances and the extra hazards of bigger better fireworks available today either. It also still assumes that people use small fireworks in back gardens when this is far from the truth these days. I personally think it's about time it was rewritten and modified for today's bigger better more spectacular fireworks with emphasis on safety distances, hazards associated with the bigger stuff and improved safety precautions that take those extra dangers into account.
