CMA’s Block Exemption Recommendations: IAAF response

The IAAF’s Chief Executive has offered his thoughts on the Competition and Markets Authority’s recommendations of the renewal of Block Exemption as we reported last week.

“On first reading of the CMA’s final MV-BEO recommendations, it’s clear and positive that they have listened and noted many of the main arguments outlined by IAAF / UK AFCAR, but the recommendations have yet to explain how the key issue of access to in-vehicle data could be provided,” said IAAF Chief Executive, Mark Field.

“There are also many references in the report to EU related requirements, and we will monitor these closely, so as to avoid regulatory divergence.

“The question of what secondary vehicle type approval legislation will exist within the UK is still very much open. There is a six-year period while the EU and the CMA ‘wait and see’ what the impact on the aftermarket will be, but this is also related to what other (i.e. type approval) legislation will be introduced.”
