Improving health and safety final report March 2015

The Department of Work and Pensions in Westminster have published a final progress report on the implementation of health and safety reforms.

The report contains the following extract regarding Adventure Activities Licensing:

“Ministers have decided that there remains a place for AALA because it is important that parents and other carers of children can have confidence that activity providers are following good safety practices.  Therefore AALA will be retained, albeit that in the longer term its scope and future delivery mechanism may change.  Any proposals for significant change will be announced with sufficient lead-in time to allow the licence holders to plan for change and, if required, will include transitional arrangements.”
