MUTAmarq is a standards scheme run by the Performance Textiles Association and assures quality and safety of the marquee hire industry in the UK. The scheme has been approved by the Home Office (Now the responsibility of the ODPM) to meet their set guidelines.

Members of the scheme are subject to random inspections to ensure:

  • Adherence to the code of practice (Read PDF)
  • Structural stability of the finished product
  • Flame retardancy of fabrics
  • MUTAmarq also supports training of erection staff through nationally recognised NVQ courses.

Many users of marquees and national bodies now insist that their contractors are members of the scheme – You should do the same.
