The government's working on a voluntary code of conduct for wheel clamping.
Consumer Affairs Minister Simon Bridges has met with key leaders in the parking enforcement industry to discuss good practice and the need for minimum standards.
It follows recent media coverage of wheel clamping activities in Auckland.
Mr Bridges says the parking enforcement industry has recognised the concerns and the need to develop a code of conduct which will protect the rights of private landowners while giving clarity to drivers about what they can expect from wheel clampers.
The parties will begin work on the draft code of conduct over the next month before meeting again with Mr Bridges.
