Reference material 18: Request for an exemption to remove trim on an imported used and parallel imported new vehicle

A declaration has been added to the trim exemption application form, making it clear to the vehicle inspector that they have had to have done their best prior to sending the application to Waka Kotahi.

The entry VIRM and the application form required the VI to have an Waka Kotahi-approved alternative inspection procedure in place. As there is no Waka Kotahi-approved alternative inspection procedure, this requirement has been removed from both the VIRM and the application form

Reference material 59: Sample UK registration certificate

Reference material 84: Sample provisional UK type approval plate

Due to the UK’s exit from the European Union, EU type approvals are no longer directly acceptable in the UK and the UK is developing its own type approval regime. The UK has temporarily adopted a provisional system that essentially converts an EU type approval to a provisional UK type approval. THe VIRM has ben updated, with samples, to reflect this.
