The EU Roadworthiness Package is a wide ranging legislative proposal. It comprises of two regulations and a directive containing several detailed annexes. An initial assessment of the implications for vehicle examination in the UK was included in my letter to the European Affairs Committee of 8 October 2012. The EU have not been able to prove any significant improvements to road safety for the UK and, as such, I have opposed those measures that result in additional cost or administrative burden for the UK motorist or business.
