In response to the hot discussion among netizens about "Dali XX issuing new regulations: prohibiting XX merchants from using candles during power outages", the XX Protection Administration of Dali City, Yunnan Province, responded on June 30 that the public had misunderstood the content of the relevant documents. As an additional clause of the upcoming "Dali XX Business Owners Fire Safety Inspection Rules", it is a guiding norm, not a mandatory requirement, and the new regulations will not set artificial thresholds for XX merchants.


Recently, media reports reported that the XX Protection Administration of Dali City, Yunnan Province will initiate the application for the "Dali XX Permit" from July 1st to further strengthen the protection and management of XX. However, the provision requiring merchants to "not use candles during power outages" in the fire safety regulations implemented in conjunction with it has caused a lot of controversy. Some netizens expressed understanding and believed that XX is mostly a wooden structure, and some dangerous equipment should be prohibited; Some netizens also believe that this is a manifestation of "lazy politics" and cannot withstand scrutiny.


On June 30th, the XX Protection Management Bureau of Dali City provided the controversial "Fire Safety Inspection Rules for XX Business Owners in Dali". Strict standards have been established in the "Rules" for the installation of indoor electrical wires and electrical circuits, as well as the configuration of firefighting facilities such as fire extinguishers, for operating households in XX. The provision that business operators are not allowed to use candles during power outages appears in the additional provisions of the "Rules". The additional clause also mentions that business operators are not allowed to use honeycomb coal; Do not use electric stoves, electric heaters (small suns), or firewood for heating; Do not use liquid alcohol, charcoal fire, etc. as heating materials for hot pot or dry pot.


It is understood that the "Rules" apply to all business operators engaged in civil and commercial production and operation activities within the Dali XX Key Protection Zone, and specify that merchants must strictly comply with the provisions of these Rules to undergo fire safety inspections before obtaining other licenses. This means that complying with the relevant requirements of the "Dali XX Business Unit Fire Safety Inspection Rules" will be a necessary condition for merchants to obtain the "Permit". Faced with the upcoming regulations, a merchant in Dali XX expressed that although they understand and support XX's protection work, is there a better way beyond the "habitual practice of banning it "?


In response, XX, the head of the Operation and Management Department of the XX Protection Management Bureau in Dali City, explained that the statement "candles are not allowed to be used during power outages" is a misreading of the document content. The additional clause in the "Rules" is "flexible guidance" rather than "mandatory requirements", which is a suggestion and advocacy for merchants in the next step of XX protection management work. It's not about immediately banning it after it's proposed, but gradually guiding merchants to use less or no open flames such as candles. The specific operation will also be humanized, and the new regulations will not become a artificial threshold for merchants. "XX emphasized.


XX also stated that issuing the "Permit to Operate" to business owners and implementing the "Dali XX Business Owners Fire Safety Inspection Rules" are only means of standardized management for XX. They are standards developed based on the lessons learned from multiple XX fires and thorough investigation. The purpose and original intention of linking relevant departments such as fire protection, environmental protection, public security, industry and commerce with XX protection management department is to better protect and manage XX.
