You don't need a PSS CCTV licence for this activity, you do however need to hold an SIA licence. (you obviously will as a clamper)

no you dont. the wearer of the headcam is nothing more than a moving image recorder, juat like any other camera in the premises. the fact that you are recording is already covered under the venues data protection certificate, and signage stating that cctv is in operation. the user should not have immediate access to the dvr though, as this could be tampered with and recorded over etc if they film something dodgy. the lawmate systems are good, as they are all passowrd protected etc.

how would the law stand on a cam mounted in the vehicle whilst clamping seems to be another grey area.

that may be different, and im not sure. with a head cam, your covered under the venue data protection, and their signage is sufficient to cover you. if it was on a vehicle, your filming public on public space really, so i dont know how this stands.

Could be wrong but I believe you may film in a public space, without garnering the consent of those that may be filmed. The fact that it is a "Public" space covers this. People cannot object to being photographed or filmed in an area where privacy may not reasonably be expected, ie on the street, a festival site etc. Bit different in a private space, such as a shop or nightclub.

If you wanted to cover yourself, I'd imagine that chucking some signage on your van, informing people that it possesses recording equipment ought to be sufficient.

I am in the throws of becoming a distributor of head cams... via www.bwse.co.uk initially for our clients and also for people to use for filming them whilst Mountain Biking, Horse Riding, Track Day's etc.

Prices and Products at RoboCam are being reviewed at the moment so the shop is temporarily closed....

Above advice seems to cover your question well from my understanding...I am sure that whoever supplied your equipment can provide the exact information you need.

For more info visit http://www.ico.gov.uk/for_organisations ... /cctv.aspx and you may also need http://www.ico.gov.uk/what_we_cover/dat ... ation.aspx

And you may also need a Consumer Credit Licence as a wheel clamper / Parking Enforcement Operative, Vehicle Immobiliser.....http://www.oft.gov.uk/advice_and_resour ... t-licence/

I don't know...maybe if you take staged payments for a fine which becomes a debt? I am not an expert in these matters but just know it exists....
