PRA RESPONSE TO: CAP AND BCAP’S PROPOSALS FOR CHANGES TO THEIR CODES AND GUIDANCE IN RESPONSE TO THE TOBACCO PRODUCTS DIRECTIVE TAKING EFFECT IN THE UK
The PRA has acknowledged within its consultation response that it cannot provide analysis on each of the detailed consultation questions. However, the regulations do cover an important retail category for PRA members and therefore, it is felt a response was necessary.
The PRA would like to be assured that the new Code will be drafted in a manner that ensures advertising is not unduly restricted, beyond minimum requirements in the TPD.
The PRA would also like to be assured that where there is scientific substantiation of benefits of switching to e-cigarettes and other nicotine containing products (such as that of Public Health England and the Royal College of Physicians) that such evidenced claims can be referred to throughout the supply chain, including at point of sale.
NFDA AND NAMA RESPONSE TO: INTRODUCING ROADWORTHINESS TESTING FOR FAST TRACTORS AND OTHER TECHNICAL CHANGES TO VEHICLE TESTING LEGISLATION.
The NFDA and NAMA, supported by the wider RMI are calling on Government to outlaw all mileage adjustment, mileage adjustment equipment and the businesses that offer mileage adjustment services. It is with this in mind that the NFDA and NAMA have responded to the above consultation, focusing on Question 15 of the document.
The NFDA and NAMA are encouraged by the inclusion of mileage fraud in the consultation and are keen to see this consultation as the first step in developing new legislation to outlaw all mileage adjustment, the sale of mileage adjustment equipment, the advertisement of mileage adjustment and the offering of mileage adjustment services.
