DESCRIPTION

BS 8603:2020


This standard BS 8603:2020 Wheelchair transport passport schemes. Code of practice is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 11.180.10 Aids and adaptation for moving
  • 11.180.99 Other standards related to aids for disabled and handicapped people

This British Standard gives recommendations for the provision and operation of systems to present essential information required by wheelchair users, their carers, transport commissioners, providers and their subcontractors, vehicle drivers and their assistants, for the safer transport of wheelchair‑seated passengers in a road vehicle.

This British Standard also gives clarification on the roles and responsibilities of all parties engaged in the provision of wheelchairs, seating systems and wheelchair accessible transport services. This includes equipment prescribers, transport managers and transport commissioners. The standard outlines a risk-oriented approach to maximizing passenger safety when essential information is determined as a result of a multidiscipline transport risk management process.

NOTE 1 By the clarification of the roles and responsibilities of all parties engaged in the provision of wheelchair‑seated passenger transport services, the route for professional development of transport commissioners, transport managers, drivers and passenger assistants might be established.

NOTE 2 While the information provided by a scheme might be relevant, it would not provide a wheelchair user additional right to travel on public transport.

NOTE 3 Wheelchair users and their care providers have a responsibility in providing information pertinent to their safe transport (see 4.3.1).
