No skyrockets or firecrackers allowed in Brussels

The use of fireworks is prohibited by the General police regulation in Brussels.

Article 44 of the general police regulation of Brussels is about dangerous activities in public places and states: “It is forbidden in public spaces and publicly accessible places to conduct an activity that may affect the public safety or the safe and smooth passage, such as: use of fireworks, except with the authorization of the competent authority, this prohibition also applies to the private property.”




Fireworks such as skyrockets, Roman candles, firecrackers, Bengal lights, used in this way, will be seized.

Although the sale of fireworks is permitted in Belgium, a municipality like Brussels has the right to prohibit or restrict the use on its territory.
