Vehicle safety defects and recalls: code of practice

14 Mar 2024

The Code of Practice concerns the situation where producers and distributors or the regulator (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency - DVSA) become aware of potential safety defects in products that are available for supply in the UK in respect of all motor vehicles, trailers and their components – as originally sold, fitted or in the aftermarket.

The scope of the code is around safety defects and the management of recall, however the administrative processes set out in the code are also intended to cover any material legislative non‐conformity from the Vehicle Type Approval that affects the operation of the product – including its emissions.
