European Ropes Course Association (ERCA)

European Ropes Course Association

Every single ropes course that JM Adventure builds is built to exceed the ERCA standard. On completion of a course we strongly recommend that it be given an ERCA Type A inaugural inspection to provide you with the peace of mind that its up to the correct and safe standard.

As a European association, ERCA formulates safety standards for ropes courses with the aim to enhance the quality and safety of ropes courses throughout Europe.

ERCA members are experts in the ropes course industry and represent a range of disciplines, from construction firms to inspectors and trainers to operators. ERCA has been actively involved in developing committees to advance professional practice, such as the development of a European standard for ropes courses.

An annual general meeting takes place to discuss and update the standards, to give the teams assignments, to define new teams and organize workshops and conferences dealing with current topics.

Three elected members represent the board.

Visit the ERCA Website to find out why this standard is so important to us, or contact JM Adventure.
