    But might any of this apply?
    Clause 10.1 - You must ensure your staff and agents are competent to carry out the tasks they are employed to do.
    Clause 10.2 - You must provide good quality appropriate education and training to all staff for the general job specific and legal (for example, health and safety) elements of their role. We may require you to evidence how you do this during an audit.
    Clause 10.3 - You will keep your employees’ education and training records for a minimum of 3 years and make them available to the BPA during an audit or on request.

    Clause 13.2 and 30.2 - If the parking location is one where parking is normally permitted, you must allow the driver a reasonable grace period in addition to the parking event before enforcement action is taken. In such instances the grace period must be a minimum of 10 minutes.

    I like this rewording. This seems to help where there are ANPR and tickets as well. Possibly even in ANPR cases only too.

    Entering a car park and driving round looking for a space can not be described as a "parking event". Stopping the car , switching off the ignition, handbrake on, leaving it for a period and starting to move off etc is the "parking event.

    Maybe I'm being overly cynical, but I still don't like the rewording, GD.

    If it had been worded to state "in advance of the parking event" then I would have been happy. However, I think that "in addition to" may be interpreted as relating to either side of the "parking event" or even after the "parking event". At least that's how I expect POPLA will interpret it - but I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    I understand your point and can agree with your sentiments, However, many PPCs use time entered/left as per their ANPRs as "the parking time", not the time on tickets.

    By mentioning a parking event, this firmly concentrates the mind on parking and not entering the site.

    If our legal members on here can't make use of this wording to our advantage with many cases, I would be most surprised.
