This pass allows access to the site pre and/or post event days. This pass will NOT allow access to the site on event days. If vehicle access is required on-site for the purpose of carrying out works, vehicle credentials also need to be applied for. The AGPC Credentials Coordinator will be able to determine what sort of vehicle access the client or contractor/supplier will require. If a client or a client’s contractor/supplier is required to obtain any of the access passes mentioned above, he/she must contact their AGPC representative to have the relevant documentation forwarded to them to complete.
