Deadline nears for public consultation

The Department for Transport's public consultation on European Whole Vehicle Type Approval closes tomorrow (Friday 22 August).

Bodybuilders, converters, van, truck and trailer makers, minibus, coach and bus makers and their dealers, suppliers and customers are all going to be affected, from as early as next April.

The documents are on the DfT website at
