There are no nationally standardized regulations for the inflatable industry. Inflatables are governed by the state that you do business in. This becomes a challenge if your inflatable business operates in more than one state.
Online PR News – 11-July-2012 – Pacoima, CA – To operate your inflatable business legally you must comply with government safety and insurance regulations. At this time there are no nationally standardized regulations for the inflatable industry. Instead the laws pertaining to inflatables are governed by the state that you do business in. This becomes even more of a challenge if your inflatable business operates in more than one state.
The level of certifications required for your business and inspection requirements will both vary from state to state. Currently there are two states, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, who additionally require inflatable products to pass engineering and safety standards before allowing you to operate your equipment rental business. While other states currently do not have specific regulations governing the inflatable industry beyond insurance requirements.
Many businesses in the inflatable industry, including Jungle Jumps, are presently working with government officials to standardize laws for inflatable businesses, as opposed to varying from state to state.
In the meantime it is imperative for your business that you follow the laws for the state that you are operating in to a T. If you do not abide by your state’s inflatable laws you risk being hit with a lawsuit, or worse having your business shut down.
To find your local government’s requirements try a search of your state followed by “Inflatable Regulations”. Be sure to only adhere to the information on reputable web sites that are hosted and updated by the government. You will also want to make sure the information that you are viewing is the most up to date. A call to your state legislature requesting the information may be well worth your time.
