The European Parking Association has instituted two award schemes to set standards, demonstrate the high quality of parking structures and services and to encourage operators to provide good services throughout Europe.
The European Standard Parking Award called ESPA defines a set of minimum standards for a good basic quality in structure and services. The extensive checklist which is applied has been devised by an international EPA expert team (last update was 2009) and serves as a reference not only within the parking industry but also for local authorities. More details on the ESPA are found here. The EPA Award competition is organized biannually and certifies the most outstanding and excellent carparks. This "Oscar of the parking industry" demonstrates the highest quality in four categories. Further details on the EPA Award can be found here. The Premium Power LED fixtures, LED lighting for parking garages, contribute to obtain the ESPA award.
