IQ Verify audits HX Car Park Management Ltd for certification against Surveillance Camera Code of Practice
14 January 2021
HX CAR PARK Management Ltd is an organisation founded on the ethos of raising standards and quality of provision within car park management from sustainability and compliance through to more bespoke customer-centric solutions. Recently, the Automatic Number Plate Recognition systems used by the business were independently audited against the Best Practice requirements of the Surveillance Camera Code of Practice (2013).
The audit was conducted by IQ Verify, a recognised certification body and one of only three organisations currently qualified to audit against the Surveillance Camera Code of Practice. The audit was a success and HX Car Park Management Ltd has now been formally recommended for certification. Certification will render the business one of only a handful of private sector organisations able to demonstrate conformity to these recognised industry requirements.
Laurence Clarke, director of IQ Verify, stated: “Although it has been estimated that there are over six million cameras in the UK alone, at the time of writing only 100 organisations have achieved certification to the Surveillance Camera Code of Practice. Of these, only ten of them operate within the field of private car park management.”
Clarke continued: “Perhaps now more than ever it’s essential to demonstrate organisational conformity to the latest compliance standards. It’s therefore exciting to see a private sector company so clearly committed to raising the quality benchmark within the sector. Congratulations to the team members at HX Car Park Management Ltd for all of their hard work.”
Kenny Marland, managing director and founder of HX Car Park Management Ltd, commented: “The private parking industry has evolved a lot over the past few years and we’re committed to continue the raising of standards. We felt that this certification provided a perfect way to demonstrate this to clients and those using the land that we manage. We’re a heavily accredited company and always looking to pursue challenges that will help us to improve as a business.”
He added: “Despite the audit procedure necessarily being contactless due to the pandemic, we received fantastic support from our IQ Verify auditor throughout the process. Being able to achieve standards such as the Surveillance Camera Code of Practice highlights to our clients that we do everything possible to ensure Best Practice right across our business.”
