Just wondering what some of the various Pyro laws are around the US and the rest of the world. In North Carolina each county just wants you to supply them with some info so they know you have some knowledge and then they add you to a list of people that can fire pyro in that county. You can still fire ground based effects with out any special inspections (by ground based I mean things like flash pots and white flashes). In New York City there is a more formalized program that involves a test and subsequent certification, the NYC method makes more sense to me as it seems much more organized. What laws does anyone else know of?
