Regulations drawn up for adventure tourism - how will this impact windsurfing instruction?

Safety audits costing up to $2500 could impact windsurfing schools when new safety regulations come into force on 1 October 2011. The Government announced in August that adventure tourism operators would be required to be registered and undergo a safety audit. The new regulations come under the Health and Safety in Employment Act, making it an offence to provide activities involving significant hazards and some level of instruction or leadership without a current safety audit certificate. They won’t apply to organisations that don’t charge fees, like schools or voluntary clubs or groups.
