About ADIPS                                  ADIPS

The Amusement Device Inspection Procedures Scheme (ADIPS) is the UK fairground and amusement park industry’s self-regulated safety inspection scheme which registers competent ride inspectors and the rides they inspect.

Qualified and competent groups or individuals can register with the scheme to be able to inspect amusement devices in various engineering disciplines, for pre-use inspection and in-service annual inspection, on behalf of the members of the industry trade associations.

The purpose of the scheme is to promote and improve fairground and amusement park safety through rules and procedures relating to the annual inspection of the amusement devices. It is supported by industry associations who require that their members use ADIPS.

These industry associations make up the policy setting body for the procedures scheme which is the Amusement Device Safety Council (ADSC).

ADIPS is also available to any operator of amusement devices as it demonstrates what is termed industry best practice and their compliance with the Health and Safety at Work (etc.) Act (HASAWA).

ADIPS has developed over the years since the early 1970s. With the advent of the HASAWA in 1974 came various moves to increase the standard of safety on fairgrounds and amusement parks.

The home office developed and published the “Home office guide to safety at fairs (the blue book) in 1976. This included information relating to the inspection of amusement devices and also technical requirements relevant to companies specialising in ride design and specification.

The Code of Safe Practice at Fairs publication was introduced in 1984, providing further guidance to individuals and organisations.
