Following changes to the certification process in January 2012, there are two types of certificate issued by ADIPS Registered Inspection Bodies and ADIPS.
Declaration of Operational Compliance (DOC)
The DOC is issued by ADIPS once the Inspection Body has confirmed satisfactory completion of the inspection by entering inspection details on the ADIPS central database of Amusement Devices.
The DOC contains a 19mm silver circular holographic foil which will not be displayed on scanned/copied versions.
Provisional Declaration of Operational Complaince (Provisional DOC)
To cover the interim period between inspection and entry onto the ADIPS database an Inspection Body may issue a Provisional DOC, which is valid for up to a maximum of 1 month from the expiry of the previous DOC. An unexpired Provisional DOC has the same validity as the permanent DOC and is evidence that the device is to be registered on the ADIPS database.
This document must be signed by the issuing Inspector.
Genuine certificates are A4. Each certificate will contain a unique DOC number and ADIPS ID number. You can check the validity of any DOC by entering this information on the public area of the ADIPS database. Click here
DOC’s and ADIPS Certificates of Registration issued in 2011 may still be valid and will contain the same unique numbers which can be checked on the database.
