PIPA is an inspection scheme set up by the inflatable play industry to ensure that inflatable equipment conforms to recognised safety standards.

It is coordinated by The Performance Textiles Association (trading as MUTA), the UK's only Trade Association dedicated to marquees, tents and structures, whose members include manufacturers and operators of inflatable equipment.

The scheme is supported by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) who were consulted at every stage of its development.

Tagging and testing for bouncy castles and other inflatable play equipment

All inflatable play equipment that falls within the scope of the PIPA scheme should be tagged and entered onto the database.

A PIPA tag means the equipment is:

  • Designed to a recognised standard based on safety
  • Tested by nationally qualified inspectors
  • Approved for commercial use

The PIPA scheme delivers:

  • Improved safety for users
  • HSE recognised best practice
  • Quality assurance
  • Certified initial test
  • Certified annual testing

PIPA has the support of:

  • Industry associations
  • Health and Safety Executive
  • Local authorities, event organisers and national businesses

Using equipment with a current PIPA certificate means you can be sure the equipment adheres to the highest safety standards.
