3.2f AALA Licensing

Employers, Heads/Managers, EVCs and Leaders should have a basic understanding of where and when the provision of adventurous activities is legally regulated.

The Activity Centres (Young Persons Safety) Act, 1995, established the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (AALA) and made it a legal requirement for certain providers of adventure activities to be licensed by the Authority.

The scheme is now the direct responsibility of the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) but is operated through the Adventure Activities Licensing Service (AALS).
