Article 521 bis. Los Inscribed as vendors of pyrotechnic artifices who lack their own stock (sales made on orders raised previously) may use, for the temporary storage of the artifices, a temporary deposit of a provisional nature, under the following conditions:

It will only be stored free and in quantity that does not exceed thirty (30) boxes (external packaging).

Preferably, deposits will be isolated premises. If they were part of a building, they should be located in such a way that they do not obstruct the free transit of people to the street.

The deposits will be on the ground floor and there will be no housing on them.

The walls will be masonry or equivalent material and will have enough openings to allow the early exhaust of gases and smoke in case of fire.

In the vicinity of the deposit there will be at least one water mouth for hose, and a fire extinguisher.

Deposits will be protected from fuel, flammable, oxidant, corrosive, etc., as well as uncovered flames.

The items of pyrotechnic artifices entering the deposits will be immobilized only the time that delays the preparation of the deliveries.

The smallest selling unit will be the intermediate packaging and the opening of the outer packaging will be done outside the premises.

In all cases, the artifices will be stored away from the exit door of the premises.

As far as possible, lighting will be natural. If there is an electrical installation, the same will be shielded anti-explosions and the cutter key must be outside the premises. As long as it doesn't operate on the premises, the light will be off.

During the entry or discharge of material operations, the door will remain open and locked to prevent accidental closure. In addition, more than two people will not enter the premises.

The merchants who are part of the rules of the present directives shall, at the time of their registration, denounce the existence of the provisional deposit.
