PIPA is an inspection scheme set up by the inflatable play industry to ensure that inflatable equipment conforms to recognised safety standards.
The scheme is supported by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) who were consulted at every stage of its development.
Tagging and testing for bouncy castles and other inflatable play equipment
All inflatable play equipment that falls within the scope of the PIPA scheme should be tagged and entered onto the database.
The PIPA scheme currently only covers equipment within the scope of BS EN 14960
It is estimated there are 23 million uses of inflatable equipment every year in the UK and PIPA are c3ommitted to improving standards in the industry and ensuring inflatable play continues to be safe and enjoyable.
PIPA urge all in the industry to ensure compliance with the standard BS EN 14960 and to operate all inflatable play equipment in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and by suitably trained persons.
