Shopkeepers in Suffolk must be registered with trading standards if they want to help the Queen's Golden Jubilee go off with a bang.
Although many are already registered, it is anticipated additional shops might want to sell fireworks for the Queen's Jubilee.
Peter Monk, member of Suffolk County Council's executive committee, said:
"This is not just a matter of complying with the law. When they register with us, we can offer advice on the safe storage of fireworks. If there is an accident and fireworks have not been stored properly, shop keepers may not be able to claim on their insurance, so it is in their interest to get advice, particularly if they haven't sold fireworks before."
