A fireworks contractor licence is required for an individual, corporation or partnership to:
- organise a fireworks display for the display host
- possess fireworks to supply them to a fireworks operator
- purchase fireworks to use in a fireworks display organised by the fireworks contractor
- store and transport limited quantities of fireworks (to supply them to a fireworks operator).
The licence lists the category of fireworks display.
Note: If a fireworks contractor is an individual, they must also be an authorised fireworks operator. If a fireworks contractor is a corporation, the corporation must have a nominated licensed fireworks operator who is a qualified fireworks contractor.
