1) Is Sparkular Machine allow for use
Is Sparkular Machine approved for use in Singapore?
Yes. Sparkular is also the ONLY BRAND of fountain sparkle products that is approved for use in Singapore.
We underwent extensive processes to get Sparkular Machine and Consumptive approved for local use and we are the only company approved by the Police Licensing and Regulating Department (PLRD) authority to import and operate Sparkular products.
Why does Sparkular Machine require permit for usage in Singapore if it requires non-pyrotechnic material ?
Sparkular is the world-first revolutionary machine designed to mimic firework/pyrotechnics effects without the traditional use of the gunpowder or explosive material. However, it has come under the purview of Dangerous Fireworks Act (Chapter 72) in which 'explosive' refers to any substance used or manufactured with a view to producing pyrotechnic effects. Thus to employ such effect, the product has to be
a) Approved for use by PLRD and
b) Handled by licensed operator.
What is the penalty for importing/using Sparkular or other similar fountain sparkle products without license / permits.
Display without a valid permit is an offence under the Dangerous Fireworks Act. Any person who commits an offence under this Act shall be liable on conviction:
a) In respect of a first offence, to a fine of not less that S$2,000 and not more than S$10,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 2 years or to both; and
b) In respect of a second or subsequent offence, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 2 years and shall also, subject to Criminal Procedure Code 2010, be punished with caning with not more than 6 strokes.
