IAAF Activity Report w-e 8 October 2021

Date: Thursday 07 October 2021

A summary of some of the activities undertaken by the IAAF Secretariat on behalf of the membership and the wider aftermarket during the week just gone by.

Northern Ireland MOT
We have completed the first draft of the Call for Evidence on the potential introduction of biennial MOT testing (every two years) for private cars, and light goods vehicles. In the first quarter of 2021, the overall pass-rate for full tests was 72.6%, the lowest pass-rate since 2008. The recent drop in vehicle test pass-rates would suggest that people have not maintained their vehicles during periods of exemption. Extending the MOT frequency would increase the number of unsafe vehicles on Northern Ireland roads, leading to more accidents, injuries and fatalities.
