playgroundregs.com - 3rd Party Independent Testing

IPEMA - International Play Equipment Manufacturer's Association
  • Coordinates and verifies 3rd party testing compliance - verifying ASTM Standards
  • www.ipema.org
The issue:
  • This industry does have some items that are subject to "interpretation"....one manufacturer says one thing...another may say something totally different
  • The IPEMA group pulls this all together - CONSISTENCY AND ACCURACY IS THEIR GOAL
What can you do?
  • Log on to the IPEMA web site
  • You can search for a particular manufacturer...and by inserting the product Model Number, you can get an actual certificate (see sample below)
  • Caution: Many times you may need to contact the manufacturer - if you are off a digit - a space - a simple typo can come up negative - so if you can't get verification CONTACT THE MANUFACTURER FOR ASSISTANCE - don't panic.
