Member Events – November 2018

31 October 2018

The independent aftermarket sector is a dynamic industry that’s constantly changing and updating – so how can you stay ahead with the latest information? The IGA’s Member Events provide you with the opportunity to discuss everything, from the smallest to the biggest issues affecting the sector, in a face-to-face setting – with the bonus of tea, coffee and a buffet lunch.

Our 2018 presentation covers everything your business needs to know to thrive in the fast-paced service and repair sector, avoid the latest scams, keep on top of new legislation such as the recent MOT Manual updates and the implementation of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and discuss MOT Manual Updates such as EU Directive 2014/45.

For attendees who aren’t members, you can discover how IGA membership lets you benefit from our experience to minimise the risks to your garage, and ensure your business develops in an ever-changing, increasingly complex industry.

As per last year, the DVSA are continuing to join us to directly discuss the latest MOT training news and updates to the MOT Testing Service, for your ease.
