Department Seeking Public Input On Zip Line Safety Regulations

Jun. 7, 2018
No. 18-23

The Association for Challenge Course Technology, in partnership with the American National Standards Institute, has developed a nationally recognized standard for zip line construction. The department is seeking feedback from industry stakeholders regarding state adoption of those construction standards for zip lines.

The department is also seeking industry feedback and public discussion of the appropriate level of qualification for zip line inspectors. The Association for Challenge Course Technology Inspector Level I or II are under consideration as the official standard for zip line inspectors.

The public meeting to discuss zip line safety regulations will be held at noon on Thursday, July 12 at the department’s Mechanical Inspection office located at 1251 Muldoon Road, Suite 113 in Anchorage. Interested parties are encouraged to register for the meeting, as relevant materials will be distributed in advance.

To register or to obtain information about how to participate in the meeting telephonically, please contact or call (907) 269-4929. For those who are unable to participate in the meeting but would like to submit comments or questions, please email

After evaluating public interest and stakeholder feedback, the department may proceed with a formal regulation process. Public comments will also be accepted at that time.
