KDOL Amusement Ride Rules Hearing Scheduled

The proposed permanent regulations mirror the temporary regulations that went into effect July 1, 2017.

The Kansas Department of Labor has scheduled a public hearing has been set on Sept. 7 to discuss the new, permanent rules and regulations under the Kansas Amusement Ride Act. It is set to start at 9 a.m. at the Kansas Department of Labor, 401 SW Topeka Blvd. in Topeka, in first floor hearing room 3. The proposed permanent regulations mirror the temporary regulations that went into effect July 1, 2017.

Comments or questions on the proposed regulations and requests for copies of the proposed regulations or economic impact statements should be sent to the Kansas Department of Labor, Attn: Bradley R. Burke, 401 SW Topeka Blvd., Topeka, KS, 66603 or emailed to brad.burke@dol.ks.gov.

The act says no amusement ride may be operated in Kansas unless a valid permit for the ride has been issued by KDOL and the owner of the ride has registered with KDOL as an amusement ride owner. In order to obtain a permit to operate an amusement ride in Kansas, the owner must first submit an application packet with KDOL. The owner must submit proof of insurance, report of itinerary, certification of inspection by a qualified inspector, and written certification that the ride meets the applicable ASTM International F24 committee standard.
