These Regulations insert an amended definition into regulation 64 in consequence of an amendment to the British Standard Specification defined in that regulation. The effect is to change the technical requirements for spray containment devices fitted to certain categories of vehicles. The Secretary of State is satisfied that it is appropriate to exercise the power given by section 41(3) of the Road Traffic Act 1972 so that the amendment shall apply to vehicles within those categories first registered before the expiration of one year from the making of those Regulations.
Copies of the British Standards referred to in those Regulations are available from the British Standards Institution at Linford Wood, Milton Keynes MK146LE (Telephone number: Milton Keynes (STD 0908) 320066).
