VRA welcomes move on regulations

The Vehicle Repairers Association (VRA) has welcomed news that new draft regulations concerning environmental enforcement in the accident repair sector, currently being formulated by the Department of Environment, Culture and Local Government (DECLG), could be in place as early as the start of next year.

Sean McCarthy, one of the founders of the VRA said, “We have kept up our dialogue with the EPA who are overseeing this process and the indications are that there could be new draft regulations published by the end of October and these could be signed off by the end of the year.” He added, “Although this timetable is subject to official confirmation it does indicate that this issue is being give much needed priority by the EPA and DECLG and that new rules should now be in place earlier than we first anticipated.”
