Approved Operator Scheme Gathers Momentum

Since its launch in October 2007, the British Parking Associations Approved Operator Scheme has gone a long way to achieving greater fairness within unregulated parking on private land.
Working alongside operators to improve standards, the Scheme is supported by a Code of Practice with which members have agreed to comply with.
Since launch, 85 parking companies have joined the AOS. In the last 12 months:
37 new members made the grade
Seven parking operators did not meet, or were unable to improve standards sufficiently to meet, the level of competence required by the Code of Practice, and therefore were unable to participate in the Approved Operator Scheme
52 compliance visits were made to member companies
14 new members are currently undergoing compliance assessment.
Approved Operator Board
In a significant step forward, the British Parking Association today (21 April 2009) announced the formation of the first Approved Operator Board, with a number of specialist groups represented to ensure fairness. These include:
Consumer Groups
BPA Council Members
BPA Staff Members (non-voting)
* Full board is listed in notes.
