Descallar said the 32 applicants can already display their products after they have received their permits. He said authorities are still waiting for the approval papers of some applicants.

The officer warned unregistered retailers, saying they will confiscate illegal firecrackers and pyrotechnics sold outside the designated area.

The BCPO will also inspect the designated area on Friday to determine if the firecracker vendors are complying with the requirements in the selling of firecrackers like fire extinguisher, stock water, and permit, among others.

The vendors are allowed to display only small triangles, pulling strings, bawang, paper caps and kwitis. For the pyrotechnics, only sparklers, fountains, airwolf and whistle devices are allowed.
