Here is a suggested letter template to send to your MEP’s regarding the proposed EU regulation on Type Approval and market surveillance. If you don’t wish to use it, please do try to use some of the points within it. It is also always a good idea to personalise the letter slightly.
The IMCO vote, which is tabled to take place on 5th Dec, (as it was on 22nd Nov and 17th October and in June before that…) looks set to be taken before the MEPs have gathered the information that they may need to make an informed decision.
Today, (23rd Nov) sees the start of a new Impact Assessment into the EU Type Approval Regulation. This has been granted due to the incredible amount of work which has been done by MAG and FEMA and everyone who has written a letter or who rode on the 25th September.
We knew that the 22nd November IMCO vote (Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee) on the Regulation would be delayed again, as MAG, FEMA and the UK Gov among others, battled to secure another, more robust Impact Assessment (IA) of the Regulation that could see an end to the modification of power-trains and compulsory ABS for all.
The crucial committee stage vote by the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Comittee (IMCO), into the Type Approval Regulation, has been postponed yet again, to the 5th December.
