Clean Vehicle Retrofit Certification (CVRC) Scheme operated on your behalf by The Energy Saving Trust (EST)

Department for Transport did not have the information requested.

Dear Department for Transport,

Could you please provide me with a copy of any National legislation, Statutory Instrument or other such legal documents or DoT instructions that gives effect to the Energy Saving Trust (EST) to operate the Clean Vehicle Retrofit Certification (CVRC) Scheme?

For clarity the CVRC scheme allows the owners of older vehicles to retrofit emissions equipment to convert a vehicle to comply with the EU6 emissions standard as defined in:

https://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/Lex...

I would like a copy of any information and/or legislation that authorises or directs The Energy Saving Trust to ensure compliance with EU Regulation 595/2009 and under what official authority they operate?

Yours faithfully,

Catherine Smith
