ADIPS covers the four types of inspection detailed in HSG 175. These are:
- Design Review
- Assessment of Conformity to Design
- Initial Test
- In-Service Annual Inspection
A device requires pre-use inspections before it operates for the first time. The pre-use inspections are Design Review, Assessment of Conformity to Design and Initial Test, unless it was manufactured prior to October 1997, in which case a Maturity Risk Assessment may be required. After twelve months an in-service annual inspection is required.
Inflatable Play equipment does not normally require pre-use inspection but should conform with BS EN 14960:2016.
