The Decree stipulates that agencies, organizations, and individuals that have full civil act capacity shall be allowed to use fireworks in the following cases: holidays, birthdays, weddings, conferences, opening ceremonies, anniversaries, and cultural and artistic activities.

Other localities shall only be allowed to display low-altitude fireworks with the same period of time.

On the occasion of the Hung Kings’ death anniversary, the northern province of Phu Tho shall be allowed to display low-altitude fireworks at 9pm on the 9th day of the 3rd lunar month.
