What is IPAF?

With the help of its members, it acts as a forum for only rental and safety training companies, but for manufacturers and distributors as well.

Our range of courses are certified by TÜV as conforming to ISO 18878, and over 10,000 operators are trained each year. With this amount of experience and credibility, it's no wonder that their courses are so trusted and respected.

Membership of IPAF is available to anyone who uses access platforms from a wide variety of sources. Manufacturers and rental and distribution companies from more than 45 different countries around the world are just some of the businesses that benefit from International Powered Access Federation IPAF membership.
