Question to the Department for Transport
To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the European Union Whole Vehicle Type Approval framework and technical directives will apply in the UK following the UK's exit from the EU; and if not, what assessment they have made of the impact on the UK automotive industry.
Answer (Baroness Sugg)
We want to agree an approach that minimises disruption and any additional costs for the automotive industry and consumers in the UK and the EU as of the day of exit. A decision on whether to continue to apply EU whole vehicle type approval will depend on the outcome of the negotiations with the EU.
Departments are working with the Department for Exiting the European Union to understand the impacts that withdrawal from the EU will have on businesses, consumers and other economic factors.
