Annual Inflatable Inspector

The Register of Play Inspectors International (RPII) provides accreditation to the competence levels required by the Pertexa Inflatable Play Accreditation (PIPA) scheme. We work alongside PIPA to ensure that all inflatable safety standards are met.

The RPII conducts written and practical examinations for Annual Inspectors of Inflatable Play Equipment. This process ensures that inspectors have met the required levels of knowledge and competency for this type of equipment.

Candidates should also own copies and have a good working knowledge of BS EN 14960 and should be able to demonstrate an understanding of how children use play facilities.  Candidates are also required to own and demonstrate competent use of inspection probes.
