In the same year as it was set up, the Fairground Joint Advisory Committee (FJAC) decided that there should be a limited company set up to administer the Amusement Device Inspection Procedures Scheme (ADIPS) and that this would be its commercial arm. This company is called ADIPS Ltd., a not-for-profit organisation. Any surplus income generated through the scheme is channelled back into the industry to promote and enhance safety standards.
ADIPS Ltd. is responsible for the administration of the ADIPS scheme, including the registration of approved inspection bodies, handling complaints, etc. It also manages the system for issuing a Declaration of Operational Compliance (DOC) to ride controllers.
ADIPS Ltd. and ADIPS are overseen by the Amusement Device Safety Council (ADSC), formed from representatives of various industry trade associations. This body meets formally four times a year to discuss matters of mutual interest relating to safety on fairgrounds and amusement parks.
The council’s stated objectives are:
The Members Only area provides NAFLIC members with an array of resources that include copies of technical guidance documents and papers, HSE documents, training papers and more.
