Dear Colleague,

On Monday, we announced the reopening for dealers of our Electric Vehicle Approved (EVA) accreditation scheme co-sponsored by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) and backed by the Energy Saving Trust (EST). EVA promotes industry standards and recognises dealers’ expertise in the electric vehicle sector. Please find more details below and email to apply to obtain your EVA badge of approval.

This week, the European Commission launched the public consultation on the Motor Vehicle Block Exemption Regulation. NFDA will be responding to the consultation independently and also as part of the Alliance of European Car Dealers and Repairers (AECDR). Please find more details below, we will keep you updated.

Following the latest Government announcement regarding COVID-19 and, in particular, the new three-tier system, we encourage our members who need assistance to contact us directly as guidance may change on a case by case basis.

NFDA is your trade association: if you require any assistance, please contact our member helpline on 0178538303 or email

Sue Robinson, NFDA Director
