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.
