If a proof of delivery is required, all  couriers / drivers wherever possible, should place the parcel on the customer's doorstep / goods inwards area, ring or knock on the customers door as appropriate and then where safe to do so, retreat 2 meters away.

Once the door is opened and/or the courier is acknowledged, the recipient should be asked whether they wish to sign for the item as per the normal delivery process or whether they would prefer a contactless delivery.

In the event of a contactless delivery being requested where an item does require a signature, the driver will request the name of the recipient so it can be entered on the hand held device and then add CV at the end of the name. For example: J JONESCV.
