Clamping Appeals Will Transfer to the National Transport Authority (‘NTA’) with Effect from October 1, 2017.
From October 1, 2017 any motorist whose initial appeal has been declined by a parking controller (clamping company) in Ireland, and who is dissatisfied by that decision, may submit an appeal to the NTA for consideration – see www.nationaltransport.ie for information.
-With the following exception:
A critical requirement of the new process as set out in the Vehicle Clamping Act 2015 is that all such appeals must be received by NTA within 30 days following the issue of the decision on the initial appeal.
Until now no time limit applied. Therefore, in order to accommodate the transition to the new arrangements, IPAS will continue, until December 31, 2017, to consider ‘legacy’ appeals received from motorists clamped by those parking controllers who subscribe to the IPAS service – APCOA, Euro Car Parks, Munster Car Parking and NCPS - because they are ineligible for review by NTA due to the 30 day rule.
IPAS will not consider appeals submitted to it which should have been submitted to NTA (i.e. less than 30 days since the car was clamped). Any such appeals received will be returned to the appellant with details of the NTA appeals process.
Until December 31,2017, normal IPAS procedures and fees will continue to apply only to any appeals that are submitted more than 30 days after being clamped.
As of December 31, 2017, IPAS will cease to exist and from that date all appeals will be handled by the NTA.
