Bungy jumping turns 25

Bungy jumping has reached a quarter of a century and, during that time, it is estimated that at least 4.5 million people around the world have taken a jump. The first version of AS/NZS 5848 Code of practice for bungy jumping was published in 1990, a second version followed in 1992, and the current version in 2000.

The standard gives guidance on the site and site approval; the design, testing, and approval of equipment; the management of the operation; the operating procedures; the emergency provisions and procedures; and registration of operating staff of a bungy jumping operation.
