With thanks to DragonFly1967 for the ideas for this list, here are some abbreviations that are frequently used on the private parking forum.

 

If needed, the lists can be expanded upon.

 

HB

 

ANPR - Automatic number plate recognition.

 

AOS - Approved Operator Scheme

 

ATA - Accredited Trade Association. In order to request vehicle keeper details private parking companies must be a member of an ATA and abide by its code of practice. ATA members must also cater for disputed cases to be referred to an independent appeals process.

 

The BPA and the IPC are the two parking related ATAs.

 

BPA - British Parking Association. One of the two "members clubs" for PPC's.

 

CoP - Code(s) of Practice.

 

DR+ - Debt Recovery Plus, a debt collector used by some private parking companies. AKA Daft Recovery + a Desperate Collection Agency

 

GPEOL - Genuine pre-estimate of loss.

 

IAS - Independent Appeals Service (run by the IPC)

 

IPC - International Parking Community (Previously known as the "Independent Parking Committee") the other "members club". Formed in part because some of the PPC's didn't like the way that the BPA run POPLA was always working against them.

 

LBA or LBC - Letter Before Action or Letter Before Claim (respectively)

 

LPS - London Parking Solutions or Local Parking Security

 

NtD - Notice To Driver (Windscreen Ticket)

 

NtK - Notice to Keeper

 

P&D - Pay and Display

 

PE - Parking Eye

 

POC - Particulars Of Claim

 

POFA 2012 or simply POFA - Protection Of Freedoms Act 2012. ( Specifically schedule 4 for keeper liability. Link)

 

POPLA - Parking On Private Land Appeals. An "independent" appeals service. Although having used quotation marks, in fairness it has to be said that they do tend to allow a lot of appeals in favour of the motorist. Run by the BPA.

 

POPLA Code - Is the code that you need in order to lodge your appeal with them.

 

PPC - Private Parking Compan(y/ies)

 

PWE - Is Parking With(out) Ease

 

RK - Registered Keeper

 

VRN - Vehicle Registration Number
