IPAF Issues Millionth PAL Card | Construction News

IPAF has issued the one millionth PAL Card (Powered Access Licence) in its voluntary, industry-led operator-training program. The program is certified by TÜV as conforming to ISO standard 18878.

To celebrate issuing its one millionth PAL Card, IPAF is calling all valid PAL Card holders to enter a drawing for some amazing prizes. A PAL Card expires after five years and there are currently more than 500,000 valid PAL Cards worldwide.

There will be five top prizes for verified operators to win a free trip to the access event of the year, the IPAF Summit and International Awards for Powered Access (IAPAs) – flight, accommodation and gala dinner included. The event will be held on 25 and 26 March 2015 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott Hotel in Arlington, Va., near Washington, DC, USA. Details of the event can be found at

“The secret of the PAL Card’s success is the guarantee that the training and testing is delivered to consistent standards worldwide by highly motivated and qualified instructors,” said IPAF CEO Tim Whiteman.
