Standard (waiting time once PRM made themselves known) - For departing PRMs this is the time difference between the time a person first makes themselves known (either in person/phone/buzzer) and when face to face contact is made. For the majority of occasions with airports with manned PRM desks, this should be immediate. This is intended primarily to capture waiting times when PRMs call from designated points or from unmanned PRM desks.

Standard (time assistance available at gate from arrival on chocks) - For arriving PRMs this is the time difference between when staff arrive at the gate (or other area) ready to disembark PRMs and the on chocks time. It is important that this is recorded for all PRMs (i.e. airports must measure this standard for all staff needed to disembark all PRMs - and not just based on the first staff member to arrive at the gate). If airports prefer to record the time difference between the time PRMs are actually disembarked and on chocks time, this is acceptable although the same targets apply.
