Type Approval consultation

Date: Thursday 02 July 2020

The IAAF would like to thank all those members who took the time to send in their responses to the recent consultation document on Type Approval.

In its official response to the consultation, the IAAF welcomed the adoption of 2018/858 into UK legislation and, for the purpose of the consultation, were working on the assumption that the UK is still being treated as though we are a member state, and that regulation 2018/858 will be adopted in its entirety by the UK.

Whilst the Type Approval document is predominantly focused around enforcement, the IAAF took the opportunity to highlight the area we are most interested in, which is the repair and maintenance provisions contained in Article 61 and Annex X of Regulation (EU) 2018/858.

The IAAF sought confirmation that the full RMI elements contained in Article 61 and Annex X would form part of the UK implementation plan as the federation assumed these would be adopted in full.
