Amusement devices must have a permit to operate from Council and a current Certificate of Registration.
Amusement devices are regulated under the Amusement Device Regulations 1978(external link).
This requires that all devices have a valid Certificate of Registration and that whenever they are operated they have a local authority permit (Regulation 11(external link)).
