NAFLIC is the UK trade association for amusement ride inspectors and other companies and individuals who provide inspection and maintenance services to ride owners, controllers and operators. Members are qualified in all aspects of amusement ride inspection and all are registered with ADIPS, the Amusement Device Inspection Procedures Scheme, which is fully endorsed and supported by the Health and Safety Executive.
The membership also includes others who provide valuable input into the inspection and maintenance aspects of rides and attractions, such as manufacturers and suppliers. Additionally, NAFLIC provides technical assistance and advice to the amusement park and travelling fairground industry.
Our association has been established for over 35 years and is recognised as the premier trade association in the UK for inspection bodies (IBs) and other relevant individuals and companies working in the amusement ride industry. NAFLIC exists to represent the interests of IBs who follow reputable inspection schemes within the UK which themselves follow the standards and requirements set out in HSG 175, and to support IBs in various ways and with a number of benefits. Additionally, the organisation provides technical advice and support to the industry overall.
We work closely with many other trade associations, the HSE and other relevant bodies to promote safety within the industry and help develop technical guidance where required. Internationally, NAFLIC represents the UK’s interests and continues to play a significant role in the development, compilation and revision of BS EN standards.
The combined technical experience within NAFLIC is second to none and our members uphold the highest standards in the field of ride inspection. Between them they cover all required disciplines and help to ensure that the impressive safety record of the industry in the UK is maintained. NAFLIC members also often work on overseas projects, clearly demonstrating the respect and credibility afforded to UK IBs by ride operators and owners worldwide.
As NAFLIC continues to develop, we anticipate the introduction of new member benefits and services to ensure we stay ahead of industry demands. These will include the provision of educational courses on technical and scheme compliance subjects, along with other activities and initiatives we feel would bring additional value to NAFLIC membership.
I urge you to take this opportunity to look through our website to learn more about the organisation and please feel free to contact us for any further information using the details on the Contact page.
