URGENT! MSA taking action on EC roadworthiness proposal

Post by Hesketh Emden » Fri Sep 07, 2012 5:18 pm

There has been much discussion recently among the motor sport community regarding an EC proposal that could potentially lead to MOT-style tests for trailers and make non-standard vehicle modifications illegal if realised. The proposals are detailed in an EC document on ‘periodic roadworthiness tests for motor vehicles and their trailers’. The full document can be viewed by clicking here: http://ec.europa.eu/transport/doc/roadw ... %29380.pdf

The MSA has been in contact with the Department for Transport (DfT) regarding this issue. A number of other governing bodies have raised similar concerns and the DfT as a result asked all interested parties to complete a survey on the proposals. It is anticipated that this will assist the department in formulating a UK response to these proposals, which the MSA has objected to in the strongest possible terms.

Given the potentially catastrophic impact of these proposals on the sport, it would be helpful for members to write to their local MP specifically on this subject and lodge their objections to the document. In addition an online petition has been launched independently of the MSA which can be found by clicking here: http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/37784.

Hi Kenton

I've just checked the link and it's working ok now. If you've still got problems, can I suggest that you copy and paste the link into your browser's address bar?

I hope that works!

Regards, H
