TYPE APPROVAL FEEDBACK WELCOMED BY IAAF

The IAAF has welcomed feedback from members on the next tranche of type approval legislation.

This legislation, known as 2018/858 covers areas including connected vehicle telemetry, and among the text that the IAAF is campaigning for is the provision of a standard diagnostic port. Currently, some VMs want to run all updates and diagnostics ‘over the air’, thus shutting out anyone other than them from the vehicle. The IAAF argues that this is bad for competition and anti-consumer choice.

Although Britain has left the EU, it is expected that it will continue to mirror legislation as selling vehicles into the EU – or even driving UK registered vehicles in the Continent would become difficult if a different standard is adopted.
