BMF On Regulations

Reality Time for Consultation on Type Approval say BMF

Welcoming the Government’s consultation on the latest EU Type Approval proposals covering rules for the construction and maintenance of motorcycles, the British Motorcyclists Federation say that this is a golden opportunity for motorcyclists to make their case.

Concentrating strictly on the terms of the UK consultation (EU Proposed Regulation for the Type Approval and Market Surveillance of 2 and 3 Wheeled Vehicles and Quadricycles) and not what might be under discussion or proposed in other EU countries (such as city bans on bikes over 7 years old and compulsory wearing of day-glo jackets, neither of which is being considered for the UK), the BMF say that we need to fight our own corner on our own ground.

“With twenty six other countries in the EU, we have to supply the British Government with a clear mandate; simply objecting on principle is not an option. Objections have to be substantiated if we are to stand a chance of getting what we want,” says the BMF’s Government Relations Executive, Chris Hodder.
