Window cleaning rope access work image

Due to an increase in reported instances of fraudulent documentation, the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA) have now created a facility to verify Technicians on their website.

This facility is available to the general public and can be used without requiring a login to the IRATA website. This should be used when considering risk assessments/method statements for window cleaning/rope access work and considering the competence of those connected with the work.

To use this service, go to and look for the ‘Technician Search’ on the right hand side of the homepage.
