Fireworks can be seen during every festival in Malaysia, but many are still considered illegal due to danger risks

According to Minor Offences Act 1955, those who are caught letting off fireworks – unless authorised to do so – may be subjected to punishment in the form of a fine of not more than RM100, or imprisonment for no more than a month, if not both.

In other words, you may submit an application to obtain permission or licence to ignite fireworks for certain events.

Otherwise, the only types of fireworks that are legal are from the brands Happy Boom and Pop Pop, as reported by Bernama last year.
