Welcome to INPAA
INPAA is committed to the promotion of infant safety. INPAA works closely with regulatory authorities, international affiliates and industry members to improve infant safety.
This is achieved by raising awareness within the Australian nursery industry on the safe supply and use of products, advocacy of injury prevention strategies and the on-going promotion of the industry.
INPAA is an advocate for a General Safety Provision (GSP) approach to the regulatory framework and to support this is an initiative of product safety guidelines where Australian Standards don’t exist. These guidelines are developed in a consultative process with key stakeholders within the Australian nursery industry.
INPAA is a privately operated organisation that has evolved following the closure of the Infant & Nursery Products Association of Australia. Its primary focus is to establish safety standards, injury prevention strategies and forums to promote the safe purchase and use of nursery products. The technical work undertaken by INPAA is carried out by the Technical Reference Group (TRG), a unique entity comprising the industry's leading technical experts.
For advice on implementing safety standards in product development, please contact us.
Subscription is open to industry suppliers, retailers, manufacturers and service providers.
INPAA is a member of Standards Australia Committees that develop safety standards for nursery products.
