Parking operators achieve accreditation status under AOS
Four parking operators have now achieved full accreditation status against the Accredited Operator’s Code of Practice. Wilson Parking and PriPark are the latest operators to achieve full accreditation in 2018, joining Care Park and Secure Parking who reached full accreditation status last year.
The Accredited Operator’s Scheme (AOS) aims to improve the parking experience by having private parking operators agree to a common code of practice including greater transparency, fairness and accountability among those accredited. Operators are awarded Accredited Operator status following the completion of a rigorous audit of over 80 criteria relating to parking operations, signage and compliance monitoring.
Since the initiative was rolled out in mid-2016 a total of 755 sites have been audited across all states and territories.
“The AOS provides both a benchmark and barometer for effective parking management, ensuring a fair balance between the rights of the motorist and those involved in the management and enforcement of parking. We are delighted to see that four major parking operators have now fully adopted the code of practice put forward by the AOS,” said Hayden Cock, Chief Executive at Parking Australia.
