The Parking Permit must only be used by the person to whom it is issued. The Parking Permit is only to be used in a vehicle in which the Parking Permit holder is either the driver or the passenger.

The vehicle on which it is displayed must be parked to facilitate access by the holder, whose name and photograph are displayed on the card.  Any abuse / misuse will result in its immediate withdrawal.  In addition, those found guilty of fraud in relation to a parking permit (e.g. false declaration at the time of application, forgery of permits, the lending of a permit to another person) are liable on conviction to a maximum fine of €3,000 or a maximum term of 6 months imprisonment.

A fixed charge of €200 (increasing to €300 if you do not pay within 28 days) is applicable for misuse of an Eu Parking Permit in cases where persons display a permit improperly, such as in the absence of a disabled person in the vehicle, a permit reported lost/stolen, or the permit of a now deceased person.

Traffic wardens and members of An Garda Síochána have the power to request and inspect a parking card to ensure it is not being misused.

In Ireland, each EU parking permit is issued for a period of two years.  The date of expiry is clearly marked on the permit and must clearly visible when being displayed. Each permit has an individual serial number, which must also be visible. An out of date parking permit is invalid and has no entitlements.
