in Japan, China, South Korea or Taiwan by a person resident in Japan and acting for or on behalf of the Secretary of State, there shall be substituted for any sum which would otherwise be payable by virtue of regulations 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 14, 17 or 18, a sum which shall be determined by the amount of work involved charged at an hourly rate of £150.

(2) In a case where paragraph (1) above applies, any fee payable in accordance with regulation 13 shall, subject to the following paragraphs, be calculated by reference to the Secretary of State’s estimate of the duration of the work likely to be required at the hourly rate specified in paragraph (1).

(3) If during the course of the work the Secretary of State estimates that the duration of the work likely to be required is greater than that estimated under paragraph (2) above, the fee shall be recalculated by reference to that greater estimate, and the excess, if any, over the fee originally payable shall be paid by the applicant.

(4) If the duration of the work actually required is greater or less than its estimated or re-estimated duration, the fee shall be recalculated by reference to the actual duration and the difference shall be paid by, or, as the case may be, refunded to, the applicant.

Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

1.  These Regulations re-enact with modifications the provisions of the Motor Vehicles (Type Approval and Approval Marks) (Fees) Regulations 1995.

2.  The Regulations prescribe the fees payable for the examination of vehicles and vehicle parts, the examination of complete vehicles and the issue of documents in connection with–

(a)the type approval of vehicles and vehicle parts and the authorisation of the application of approval marks to vehicles and vehicle parts for the purposes of Community Instruments and ECE Regulations; and

(b)the national scheme for the type approval of vehicles and vehicle parts established under sections 54 to 66 of the Road Traffic Act 1988, the Motor Vehicles (Type Approval) (Great Britain) Regulations 1984 (S.I. 1984/981) and the Motor Vehicles (Type Approval for Goods Vehicles) (Great Britain) Regulations 1982 (S.I. 1982/1271).

3.  In addition the Regulations prescribe the fees payable for–

(a)the examination of premises with a view to their being approved for the purposes of carrying out examinations in accordance with a type approval scheme, a Community Instrument or an ECE Regulation; and

(b)advising a manufacturer whether his arrangements for securing conformity of production are likely to be accepted by the Secretary of State.

4.  The Regulations make the following changes of substance.

5.  The principal changes relate to the fee amounts; these changes result in an overall increase of less than 2%.

6.  A new provision has been introduced whereby work carried out in Japan, China, South Korea or Taiwan by a person who is resident in Japan and acting for or on behalf of the Secretary of State will be charged at an hourly rate of £150.

7.  The introduction of new or amended ECE Regulations and new Community Instruments means that–

(a)certain new fees relating to tests for frontal collision of passenger cars, lateral collision of passenger cars and light goods vehicles and tests for vehicle alarm systems have been added to Schedule 1; and

(b)new standards appear for child restraints, electromagnetic compatibility (radio-interference suppression) and brakes.

8.  Copies of the ECE Regulations and Community Instruments referred to in these Regulations may be obtained from Her Majesty’s Stationery Office.
