Initial verification

7.—(1) An application for consideration of any instrument for EEC initial verification shall be made to the Secretary of State in such manner as he may direct.

(2) The Secretary of State shall determine whether an EEC pattern approval is in force in respect of the instrument and, if so, whether it conforms to the approved pattern.

(3) Where the Secretary of State is satisfied—

(a)that the instrument conforms to the requirements of the Directive; and

(b)that an EEC pattern approval is in force in respect of the instrument and that the instrument conforms to the approved pattern;

he shall cause to be affixed to the instrument the United Kingdom mark of EEC initial verification.

(4) If the Secretary of State refuses to cause any EEC mark of initial verification to be affixed to an instrument he shall give to the applicant a statement in writing of his reasons for the refusal.

(5) A record of all tests and examinations carried out under this Regulation shall be kept.

(6) Where an EEC pattern approval is subject to a condition limiting the number of instruments which may be submitted for initial verification by reference to the pattern in question, a person who makes an application, or causes or permits the making of an application, which if granted would contravene the condition, shall be guilty of an offence unless it is shown that he did not know, and had no reason to believe, that it would or might contravene the condition.
