IATP  BSI PAS 5000: 2017

In April 2017 the British Standards Institute published the Publically Available Standard (PAS) 5000:2017 for Fixed Indoor Trampoline Parks. This document sets out the minimum standards for the design, construction, and operation of trampoline parks. The PAS was sponsored by the IATP and written by a working group that included RoSPA, British Gymnastics, The Health and Safety Executive, Environmental Health Officers, Constructors, Insurers, and Operators.

 

The IATP believes that the PAS is a very positive step forward in making the Trampoline Park Industry in the UK safer for users and in providing guidance for those involved in the industry. The IATP recommends that all those involved in trampoline parks should be working to these standards as a minimum and from August 2018 requires all members to commit to working to these standards.

Park Members

From August 2018 all IATP UK Park Members will be required to hold an inaugural certificate of compliance to PAS 5000:2017 (parts 4 and 5). This can be issued by an approved IATP Inaugural Inspector -  a list of inspectors can be downloaded below. This certificate will also be accepted by insurers who require compliance to PAS 5000:2017. Each park is responsible for booking their inspection and the price of the inaugural inspection is to be agreed with the inspector appointed.

Membership renewal

To renew membership for 2017-2018 park members must commit to undergoing an inaugural inspection within the membership year. Once a certificate of compliance is produced the park member will be accredited as BSI Compliant on the IATP website and public list and receive an accreditation for the park.

 

From 2018 a certificate of compliance or valid inspection certificate (as applicable) will be required for membership.

 

Once your park has achieved the inaugural certificate of compliance there will be an annual quality inspection based upon part 5 of PAS 5000:2017.  More information on the annual inspection procedure will be available shortly.

 

Associate Constructors/Franchisors/Manufacturers Members

All Constructors/Franchisors/Manufacturer members will be required to demonstrate Professional Indemnity insurance of at least £2million, Employers Liability insurance of at least £10 million, and Public and Products liability insurance of at least £10 million, plus sign a statement to agree to only build Trampoline Parks to PAS 5000:2017 in the UK.
