The Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation

IAAF Activity Report w-e 29 April 2022

Date: Friday 29 April 2022

A summary of some of the activities undertaken by the IAAF Secretariat on behalf of the membership and the wider aftermarket with lobbying intensifying as the federation raises awareness of aftermarket.

MOT Extension:
The IAAF is mounting a robust response to any proposals to extend the MOT. Through our efforts as a federation and also through UK AFCAR, we will oppose any potential plans to extend the MOT.

Next week, the IAAF will meet with CMA ahead of their proposal to the secretary of state on Motor Vehicle Block Exemption Regulations (MVBER). If there are any further specific issues which should be proposed as an update to the current MVBER, please do let us know.

Vehicle tampering debate:
The parliamentary debate on vehicle tampering this week was very useful. Clearly, there is a need to discuss both further legislative principles and the technical detail with the DfT, but the Minister involved in the debate (Trudy Harrison) understood many aspects of the Aftermarket. Our submission was forwarded and both UK AFCAR and the wider aftermarket were mentioned in the debate.
