The GKA sets itself the target to continually make kitesports as safe as possible. That aim will be achieved by the development of safety-standards and all GKA-member-companies agree to jointly work together to standardise safety-measurements.
The safety standards will help the consumer to find the right product more easily. Equally, co-operating companies will have the certainty to enter other markets, such as France for instance, which has its own stringent restrictions, without legal obstacles.
