Playground Safety Regulations

  • The regulations apply to all playgrounds open to the public including church, subdivision, child care setting, and any public agency including state, city, county, school district, and any other district.
  • Public playgrounds must comply with all playground related specifications of ASTM and CPSC, the two standards required by the state of California.
  • Before a playground is open to the public, it must be inspected and approved by a NPSI Certified Playground Safety Inspector. Installation by a Manufacturer authorized installer is not sufficient.
