PAS 900 Code of Practice for Wheelchair Passport Schemes
Publicly Available Specification (PAS) 900 gives the recommendations for the provision and operation of systems to present essential information required by wheelchair users, their carers, vehicle drivers and their assistants, for the safe transport of wheelchair seated passengers in a road vehicle.

What is a Wheelchair Passport?
A wheelchair passport is a means to relay key information to transport providers, drivers and passenger assistants. The passport relates to the provision of safe transport of wheelchair users when being driven on roads. It aims to present the information in a consistent way, so it is easily accessible.

Each person directly involved in the provision of equipment for use in transport, be they the wheelchair prescriber, the user and/or their carer or escort, a transport manager, a vehicle driver and their assistant, needs to act together to create access to the information required to maximise the safety of wheelchair seated passengers.

It is intended that the passport is attached to a wheelchair and designed to hold pertinent details, presented in an easy-to-read, safe, reliable and durable format. The extent of information supplied will depend on the complexity of the individual’s disability.
