The request was successful.

Dear Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs,

Could you please provide me with a copy of any National legislation, Statutory Instrument or other such legal documents or 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?

I have already been in contact with the Department of Transport who confirm that the information I seek rests with yourselves in the Joint Air Quality Unit at the Department for the Environment and Rural Affairs(DEFRA) and that payment is made directly from DEFRA to EST/LowCVP for operating the scheme.

Yours faithfully,

Catherine Smith
