Code of practice (CoP) for wheelchair passport schemes

Publication date: 2013
Ranking: essential

This CoP promotes the use of a passport scheme which would include basic details required by wheelchair users to enable their safe travel in road vehicles. This would range from a wheelchair’s weight and any key features to the restraints required and seating systems.

It seeks to overcome the problem of transport providers having to assess wheelchairs users needs at the point of departure when there is little time to do so and the information may not be to hand.
