Fireworks which are assembled in compound fireworks shall not be labelled with the information according to 4.3 and the safety information according to 4.6. 4.2 Type of firework, category, CE marking and registration number The type of firework shall be marked, in upper case, in conformity with EN 15947-2:2015. If a trade name is used in addition to the type name, it shall not conflict with the principal effects of the relevant type of firework or with the name of another type of firework. For Roman candles the number of shots shall be marked, e.g. “8 SHOT ROMAN CANDLE”. The category shall be marked, in upper case, as “CATEGORY F2” or “CAT F2”, for example. The registration number for tracing of products shall be marked in accordance with the example below: XXXX – YY – ZZZZ… where XXXX refers to the registration number of the notified body issuing the certificate, YY refers to the category of firework in abbreviated format (F1, F2, or F3 for category F1, F2, or F3 respectively), and where ZZZZ is a processing number used by the notified body. According to Regulation (EC) No 765/2008 the CE marking shall be applied to the label. The minimum height of the CE marking shall be 5 mm. According to Directive 2013/29/EU Art. 8(2) and 20(3) CE-marking is followed by the identification number of the Notified Body responsible for: — monitoring the existing quality system (in case of Modules D and E); and/or SIST EN 15947-3:2016

EN 15947-3:2015 (E) 6 — checking conformity to type according to Module C2 (where the notified body intervened during the manufacturing phase). Selection packs containing one or more categories shall be marked with the highest category in the pack, e.g. “CAT F3”.
