Commissioning inspection of amusement devices

The safe use and management of amusement devices is regulated in The Netherlands in the Commodities Act on Attractions and Playground Equipment (Warenwetbesluit Attractie- en Speeltoestellen). Besides requirements for the management and maintenance during the operational lifespan of the attraction equipment, requirements are also set for new amusement equipment.

In the Netherlands, an attraction equipment may only be used if it has a certificate of approval. This certificate can only be issued by testing bodies which have been specially authorized for this purpose by the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport. Such an organisation is called an Appointed Approval Authority (AKI). MME Group is such an Authority, and you can therefore contact us for both commissioning and in-service inspections of amusement devices.

In order to issue a certificate of approval, a commissioning inspection is carried out. This involves assessing whether the amusement device complies with the regulations of the Commodities Act on Attractions and Playground Equipment. Amongst other things, this involves testing whether the safety measures meet the minimum level as prescribed in the European standard for attraction equipment NEN-EN 13814.


The commissioning inspection roadmap broadly consists of the following steps:

  • Request for a quotation (use the online contact form above) and a request for an inspection
