AN ACT TO AMEND THE CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, BY ADDING SECTION 23-35-45 SO AS TO PERMIT THE USE OF PYROTECHNIC MATERIALS INSIDE ANY ENCLOSED ENTERTAINMENT OR ASSEMBLY AREA BEFORE PROXIMATE AUDIENCES WHEN THE INDOOR PYROTECHNICS ARE USED IN ACCORDANCE WITH A SPECIFIED STANDARD OF THE NATIONAL FIRE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION, TO DESIGNATE THE STATE FIRE MARSHAL DIVISION AS THE AGENCY RESPONSIBLE FOR ADMINISTERING AND ENFORCING THESE PROVISIONS, AND TO AUTHORIZE THE STATE FIRE MARSHAL DIVISION TO ESTABLISH AND CHARGE CERTAIN FEES IN REGARD THERETO.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Use of pyrotechnic materials indoors
SECTION 1. The 1976 Code is amended by adding:
"Section 23-35-45. Nothing in this chapter or in any other provision of law prohibits the use of pyrotechnic materials inside any enclosed entertainment or assembly area before proximate audiences when the indoor pyrotechnics are used in accordance with Standard 1126 of the National Fire Protection Association entitled `Standard for the Use of Pyrotechnics Before a Proximate Audience', 1992 edition. The State Fire Marshal Division of the Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation is designated as the agency responsible for implementing, administering, and enforcing the provisions of this section, including the promulgation of necessary regulations. The State Fire Marshal Division also may establish fees which may be charged on a per performance or other basis to offset the cost of enforcing the provisions of this section, such fees to be the responsibility of the owner or operator of the establishment where the indoor pyrotechnics shall be used."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Approved the 2nd day of May, 1994.
