Sample sentence:
Pools approved before 1992 may continue to have equipment shielded by shrubs and are "grandfathered-in" as long as shrubs continue to shield 100%.
Failure to comply will cause the owner to lose the "grandfathering" status.

How do I translate "grandfathered-in" and "grandfathering status"? Thank you!

    Hola,

    Tal vez esto te sriva:

    "grandfather clause n. 1) a clause in a statute or zoning ordinance (particularly a city ordinance) which permits the operator of a business or a land owner to be exempt from restrictions on use if the business or property continues to be used as it was when the law was adopted. Upon passage of the statute or regulation, the specific property may be referred to as "grandfathered in." Example: the city passes an ordinance which does not permit retail businesses in a particular zone, but any existing store can continue to function in the area, even with new owners. However, if the premises stop being a retail outlet then the grandfather clause will lapse."

    Lamentablemente, en estos momentos no se me ocurre una palabra en español que describa este concepto.

    Saludos,

    Estimados,
    disculpen que me cuelgue de acá, pero tiene relación con la pregunta. tengo la misma palabra "Grandfather" provisions y no sé exactamente a qué se refiere. el texto es el siguiente:

    This representation is a confirmation that the engagement team members performing audit services for {Name of subsidiary/component client}for the {state engagement details including period end} have completed all accreditation requirements to serve on this engagement team or have obtained the necessary approvals to meet the grandfathering provisions.

    les agradeceré si me pueden ayudar.
    saludos,

    Grandfathered in es un concepto de conservar privilegios antiguos en un nuevo lugar
    Normalmente no es que se conserven privilegios antiguos, sino que a la hora de imponer algún nuevo reglamiento se le otorgan privilegios a aquellas entidades que cumplan con los criterios necesarios --es decir que no se verán afectadas por aquel, pero las que no cumplan con los criterios (a menudo es una fecha antes de la que algo se haga/contruya/cambie/etc.), sí.
