Lobbying and Representation
IPAF makes representations to relevant authorities on issues of concern to members.
IPAF staff collectively have more than 300 years of industry experience from around the world. That expertise is at our members’ disposal.
IPAF members needing advice on matters ranging from risk assessment to platform use and accident procedures can call IPAF head office or an IPAF country representative.
IPAF members can access the members-only area of the website, which holds meeting minutes, presentations and useful guides.
