How do Jurisdictions permit/inspect temporary amusement rides?
Amusement rides that are part of temporary fairs are installed for just a few days and then are dismanteled and moved to a new location. What kind of oversight is performed by local jurisdictions? Are permits requested? Are inspections conducted? What staff members are involved and what kind of credentials are required for that staff?

How are jurisdictions dealing with UL removing the listing on Electric Circuit Protective Systems?
In NJ we are very concerned with this and we are preparing a guidance document for our electrical inspectors. Has any jurisdiction dealt with this issue yet? I would be more than happy to share our guidance with you all once it’s prepared. Time is of the essence on this matter as UL pulled the listing on 9/12/12. – John Terry (NJ)
