ISO 21101 – Adventure Tourism – Safety Management System

Further details

Adventure tourism is a global industry whose importance is growing. Presenting adventurous tourism activities, whether for economic gain or non-profit or charity, poses a risk and challenge as an accepted and integral part. Risk-taking has its advantages, but it also carries risks. In order to maximize benefits, adventure tourism providers need to be as safe as possible.

The purpose of ISO 21101 (Adventure Tourism Safety) Standard is to set minimum requirements for safety management and awareness systems for participants. The standard sets out the general requirements for contractual aspects of services, including adventurous tourism activities that are offered to participants and other stakeholders. Providing accurate and compliant information will help participants make informed choices about their activities.

ISO 21101 (Adventure Tourism Safety) outlines the requirements of a safety management system for adventure tourism activity providers.

A provider can use ISO 21101 for the following:

  • to enhance safety performance;
  • to meet expectations for participant and staff safety;
  • to demonstrate safe practice;
  • to support compliance with applicable legal requirements.

ISO 21101 can be used by all types and sizes of providers, operating in different geographic, cultural and social environments.

ISO 21101 (Adventure Tourism Safety) sets out the general requirements for contractual aspects of services, including adventure tourism activities that are offered to potential participants and other stakeholders.

This increases the likelihood of a safe experience.
