The organiser of a fireworks display (including pyrotechnic shows) must submit a written notice to the local police at least 14 days in advance. The notice must be given even if the fireworks display is organised as part of a public event.
Laser equipment intended for use at a public laser show must be presented at the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority of Finland (STUK) for inspection at least 30 days before the scheduled use of the equipment (initial inspection).
If non-terminated beams are to be used at an outdoor show, STUK must be notified 10 weeks in advance of the scheduled use of the equipment. STUK must be notified of other laser shows that require inspection at least 30 days before the scheduled use of the equipment.
The Finnish airport operator Finavia must also be notified of the use of laser equipment outdoors.
