Anti-Entrapment Compliance Plan
Due to the complexity and specialized knowledge needed to assess the equipment required for anti-entrapment, the owner or their agent may contract the services of a suitable professional or professional engineer to complete the anti-entrapment documentation. Documentation provided by the service professional and/or engineer should be included with the anti-entrapment plan.
