This requirement shall be verified by examination of the design from the manufacturer’s documentation. 4.2 Safe disposal Each pyrotechnic article shall be designed and manufactured in such a way that it can be disposed of safely by a suitable process with minimum effect on the environment. This requirement shall be verified by examination of the information about safe disposal in the instructions for use. 4.3 Means of ignition Any means of ignition shall be protected to avoid accidental initiation of the article. This requirement shall be verified by visual examination. For pyrotechnic articles equipped with ignition devices which are CE type certified, no further testing of the ignition devices is required. If the pyrotechnic article is equipped with ignition devices which are not CE type certified, the ignition devices shall comply with the following requirements of prEN 16265:2013: — safety features (see 4.5 and prEN 16265:2013, 5.5); SIST EN 16263-2:2015

EN 16263-2:2015 (E) 7 — mechanical resistance of leading wires (if any) or leading optical fibre (if any) (see prEN 16265:2013, 5.8.1 and 5.8.2); — determination of all-fire and no-fire thresholds (see prEN 16265:2013, 5.9); — electrical characteristics (see prEN 16265:2013, 5.11); — resistance to ESD (see prEN 16265:2013, 5.12). These tests may be performed on the articles or on subcomponents of the pyrotechnic articles which include their ignition device provided that their functioning remains representative of the normal behaviour of the ignition device in the article. Manufacturers may provide test reports proving these requirements are fulfilled. 4.4 Safety features Each pyrotechnic article shall be equipped with safety features which are appropriate to its mode of initiation. For articles that are sensitive to mechanical shocks, drops or other stimuli with the potential to cause unintended initiation, if the safety feature is not already a part of the included ignition device, the pyrotechnic article shall be equipped: — with a safe / arm device, a safety pin or any other device intended to stop propagation of ignition along the whole pyrotechnic train; or — with other means of protection to prevent inadvertent initiation. The presence of the safety features shall be checked by visual examination and their effectiveness shall be verified in accordance with EN 16263-4:2015, 5.7 (mechanical conditioning), 5.8 (mechanical impact test), and 5.13.1.2 (electrostatic discharge). No initiation shall take place during these tests and the safety features shall remain in their safe position. This last requirement shall be verified by visual examination. Integral safety features shall be checked by verification of construction and design according to 5.1 and their effectiveness shall be verified in accordance with EN 16263-4:2015, 5.7 (mechanical conditioning), 5.8 (mechanical impact test), and 5.13.1.2 (electrostatic discharge). No initiation shall take place during these tests and the safety features shall remain in their safe position. This last requirement shall be verified by function test in accordance EN 16263-4:2015, 5.10.3.4. When the user could be exposed to the pyrotechnic effects during the ignition operation, the pyrotechnic article shall be equipped with an appropriate delay to allow the user to retire to the safe firing distance or assume the safe article orientation for hand-held devices as specified in the instructions for use. This requirement shall be verified according to EN 16263-4:2015, 5.10.3.1 and 5.6. 4.5 Toxicity When the article is designed to generate toxic substances as intended use (e.g. pesticides), the manufacturer or importer shall supply corresponding information on the appropriate means of limiting exposure to these reaction products. This requirement shall be verified by examination of the instructions for use. 5 Performance requirements 5.1 Verification of performance When tested in accordance with EN 16263-4:2015, 5.10, each pyrotechnic article shall function completely and attain the performance characteristics specified by the manufacturer.

When a use by date is specified by the manufacturer and is greater than two years after the manufacturing of the article, its correct functioning at the 'use by' date shall be demonstrated by the manufacturer: — either by results of firings of articles at the 'use by' date where available; — or by function test in accordance with EN 16263-4:2015, 5.10, after extension of the thermal conditioning test over a period of time that shall be determined from the 'use by' date according to EN 16263-4:2015, 5.9.2.4. 5.2 Verification of design When tested in accordance with EN 16263-4:2015, 5.2 and 5.3, the pyrotechnic article shall be in accordance with the ma
