    The DfT are being, intentionally or unintentionally, obstructive. The simplest solution is to accept EU type-approvals for a period (anywhere between two and five years, possibly open-ended). Then, as we exit the EU, monitor any new standards or changes to current ones to decide if any divergence is appropriate. In the meantime, investment in UK accreditation could be increased, partly to cope with domestic demand and, hopefully, to be competitive with other accreditation bodies world-wide; let’s not forget a large proportion of automotive regulation is international. The DfT need to look for solutions, not problems.
