Compliance Alert – State Regulations for Amusement Rides & Devices
On July 15, 2019, the State of Colorado implemented new Regulations for Amusement Rides and Devices (7 CCR 1101-12, the “Regulations”). If your entity has previously received an operator exemption from the Regulations, per Section 1-4(I), your rides and devices must still meet or exceed the standards adopted in the Regulations. Thus, obtaining a copy of the standards and the associated references to help ensure continued compliance is essential. Further, if utilizing the Section 1-4(I) exemption, your entity should maintain records that your ride or device is certified or issued a permit by one of the agencies listed in that Section.
