Proposed Regulation Updates

The Division of Oil and Public Safety (OPS) intends to begin a permanent rule change process for the Amusement Rides and Devices regulations with the purpose of:

  • Adding language for the regulation of trampoline parks;
  • Improving current language in regulations regarding zip line and challenge course operations;
  • Discussing the possibility of adding language for patron responsibility;
  • Clarifying language for reportable injuries; and
  • Updating and/or including applicable standards and definitions, namely:
  • Adopting new standards from American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) F2970-13 (Standard Practice for Design, Manufacture, Installation, Operation, Maintenance, Inspection and Major Modification of Trampoline Courts); and
  • Updating the regulations to reflect the adoption of current ASTM standards.

The draft of the proposed rule changes will be available to download from our website after December 30, 2014.
