Aerial Recreational Device Operators Must Register With KDA by July 1
Devices Include Zip Lines, Climbing Walls
FRANKFORT (June 1, 2018) — The Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA) reminds operators of aerial recreational devices that their devices must be registered with the KDA and in compliance with state law by July 1, 2018. Failure to meet the deadline may result in a stop operation order until the operator is compliant with state law.
The Kentucky General Assembly passed legislation in the 2016 session that directed the KDA to regulate aerial recreational devices. The law defines an aerial recreational device as “a device that provides for a unit of human activity, including but not limited to devices to simulate rock climbing, beams, bridges, cable traverses, climbing walls, nets, platforms, ropes, swings, towers, zip lines, or jump systems that are installed on or in trees, poles, portable structures, buildings, or that are part of a self-supporting structure.”
