The Department notified the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders on 30th October that a derogation would be granted to manufacturers for the transition to the new WLTP emission test procedure. In addition, the Department’s officials have met with representatives of the Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle Converters’ Association (WAVCA) to discuss derogations and so ensure the supply of these important vehicles continues.
