MOTOR CODES LAUNCHES COMPLIANCE PANEL

Motor Codes has announced the starting membership of its new compliance panel, which aims to improve industry links with the government, consumer organisations and vehicle manufacturers.

The Independent Compliance and Assessment Panel will meet quarterly to evaluate and review the Motor Codes code of practice. Motor Codes says that this independent scrutiny of its code ensures that the code always acts in the best interests of garages and workshops. Such scrutiny is also a keystone of Motor Codes’ recent OFT approval.

At the request of Trading Standards the panel – previously working on a rolling membership basis – will now feature set members to decide on industry issues. These members are:

Ron Gainsford OBE, Chief Executive, Trading Standards Institute, Chairman

Stuart James, Director, Independent Garage Association

John Lally, Director General, National Caravan Council

Arnold Pindar, Chairman, UK National Consumer Federation

Steve Settle, Director of Customer Services, Toyota (GB)

Managing Director at Motor Codes Chris Mason commented: “The presence of Ron Gainsford over the past year has ensured effective regulation of our operations, with sanctions for businesses that fall below the mark.  The calibre of people that have responded to Ron’s call to strengthen the Compliance Panel demonstrates the growing importance of our robust industry code for both business and the consumer.”
