Rights and responsibilities of Blue Badge holders
A Blue Badge will help you park closer to your destination, either as a passenger or a driver. The badge is for on-street parking only. Off-street private car parks, such as those provided in hospitals or supermarket car parks, are governed by separate rules.
People who can use a Blue Badge
If you are a Blue Badge holder, it is for your use and benefit only.
It must only be displayed if you are travelling in the vehicle as a driver or passenger and are personally making use of a parking concession.
Don’t allow other people to use the badge to do something on your behalf, such as shopping or collecting something for you, unless you are travelling with them.
You should not allow people without a disability to take advantage of the benefits from your badge while you sit in the car.
You must never give the badge to friends or family to allow them to park for free, even if they are visiting you.
Misusing a Blue Badge
It is a criminal offence for you or anyone else to misuse a badge. You must never copy the badge, try to alter the details or continue to display the badge when you no longer need it.
Misusing a badge could lead to prosecution and a fine of up to £1,000.
EN ISO 7010:2012
EN ISO 7010 was introduced in 2003 and revised in 2012. Since then it has been accepted into EU Law and provides a standardised, easy to understand safety message - wherever you are and whatever language you use!
Why EN ISO 7010
The main goal of the standard is to introduce a globally recognised range of safety pictograms. Although most will be similar and familiar, there are some new introductions
Where does EN ISO 7010 apply?
The regulation is applicable in all workplaces and locations where users need to be informed about safety matters - emergency exits and hazardous area signs are excellent examples of standard use signs
