RMI and DVSA join forces to host CITA Working Group Meeting

29 October 2015

A meeting was held recently at the RMI’s London Headquarters over two days, hosted jointly by The DVSA (Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency) and Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMI) for a CITA working group in environmental protection systems.

Both the RMI & DVSA are members of CITA which is a worldwide organisation that looks at vehicle inspection and gives guidance, best practice and recommendations to EU and UN.

During the meeting which attracted 32 delegates from Africa as well as Europe were discussions on diesel emission testing during PTI (our MOT), NOx measurement during PTI, testing of alternative powertrain vehicles and enforcement of low emission zones. A visit was also arranged by DVSA to show delegates the project Transport for London (via their contractor Tower Transit) are conducting in running a number of busses powered by hydrogen fuel cells, and the specialised workshops and refuelling facilities needed to maintain these vehicles.
