Sky Lanterns

Industry Code of Practice - Sky Lanterns

This new industry code of practice aims to provide guidance for manufacturers, importers, distributors and retailers of sky lanterns. The code will help market surveillance authorities recognise the necessary safety checks, the type of warnings and instructions that need to accompany the product, and help ensure the responsible sale and safe use of sky lanterns. 

The code was the outcome of discussions between Government and industry hosted by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. 

This document was produced by industry and  approved by TSI lead officer for Consumer and Product Safety Christine Heemskerk.
