The European Parking Association (EPA), founded in 1983, is the umbrella organisation for European parking associations. The national member associations represent the parking sector which is consisting of private companies and public bodies that are operating and managing on- and off-street parking structures and services.

The associate members represent the supply industry that offers all related products and services concerned with parking. The EPA aims to facilitate cooperation between the professional parking organisations of different European countries, the exchange and mutual support of professional experience among members and may exert influence on measures and resolutions of the European Commission and other relevant international bodies relating to parking and urban mobility.



The Ceremony of the EPA Awards 2019 will take place on September 19 at 9:30 at the auditorium of the Malaga Trade Fair and Congress Center.

Alliance for Parking Data Standards

The European Parking Association, the British Parking Association and the International Parking Institute have joined forces to form the Alliance for Parking Data Standards (APDS) focused on developing and managing an international data standard for the parking industry.

From Friday, August 17, 2018 Release 1.0 covering the draft standard for the Data Domains, Parking Place, Rate and Occupancy will be available.

The Release 1.0 technical documents contain Data Model, Use Cases and Data Dictionary. To manage the distribution of the technical documents effectively and ensure feedback is collected and collated, each individual/organization is asked to request the documents via an online form on the project Website.
