It is mainly responsible for the standardization of fireworks and firecrackers production, circulation and use, and builds an international standard system for fireworks and firecrackers. Since its establishment, the Secretariat has organized and organized the international standardization work and exchange activities of fireworks in an orderly manner, and achieved good results.
