Department for Transport Issues Consultation on EU Roadworthiness Directive

The Federation offers its apologies to members who on receiving their latest FBHVC Newsletter discovered no mention of the recent DfT consultations on aspects of UK implementation of the EU Roadworthiness Directive.

Having advised us at meetings at the DfT that we would be further consulted prior to any publication, the DfT went ahead and published without even giving us prior warning of the date let alone carrying out the promise of further consultations with us.

The timing of the release was particularly unfortunate as it came after the new Newsletter had already gone to press.

Those members who follow us on social media will know that we immediately urged members to give us their views on the consultation and many of you have been doing just that on Facebook.These views are being taken into consideration as we draft our detailed response to the DfT consultation.

Be assured that our legislation team is  preparing a response but you will understand that it is at an early stage and would be inappropriate to go into more detail.

Once our response has been drafted and approved by the Board of FBHVC and indeed submitted to Government, we will publish it in full on all our media channels.

We appreciate your input to this process and your forebearance.
