The UK Revenue Protection Association
Protecting Revenue, Saving Lives
Following a national RP (Revenue Protection) Conference in 1998 it was agreed to establish a formal (though voluntary) body - the UK Revenue Protection Association (UKRPA) to cover RP interests. The UKRPA:
- Provides a Forum for exchange of information and discussion of matters of common interest related to Revenue Protection (RP) in order to benefit business activities
- Nominates representatives to represent interests on relevant groups discussing the development of the competitive market
- Acts as an interface to other representative organisations with an indirect interest in RP
- Promotes publicity and agreed activities in the collective interests of members, including an occasional national conference and promotes development, where practicable, of a common approach to issues of Training, Operating Procedures, Technical Developments and Liaison with Suppliers and other utility sectors.
The UKRPA is managed by a Committee that meets regularly to discuss progress against a published and agreed business plan.
The UKRPA Constitution (as approved at a GM in January 2016) can be found here.
Membership to the UKRPA
Full Membership is open to all companies providing RP Services to electricity, gas and water suppliers. Associate Membership is open to manufacturers and providers of services related to RP, and smaller supply companies.
A small committee manages matters between general meetings. The Association holds a quarterly forum and several sub-committees looking at particular aspects of RP work, such as training and security measures, and employs a Consultant to address specific issues.
The UKRPA Strategy 2016-17 can be found here.
