Driver Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) – Changes to Quality Control RequirementsBack

dvsaThe DVSA announced on 16 March in Special Notice 1-2015 that, as the new MOT computer system will not record QC checks, AEs will need to provide evidence to the DVSA in the future as to how they are managing test quality.

DVSA are stating that AEs should have in place a system sufficient to enable them to discharge their responsibility to adequately manage quality and they are acknowledging that many use trade association schemes to support the AE and provide advice.

The RMI has been working closely with the DVSA and, having provided such assistance with its MOTQC scheme for many years, has pledged that it will support all RMI test station members needing assurance they have an adequate QC system is in place.

Our own dedicated MOT operations team conducts MOT site assessments, covering all the areas that the DVSA focuses on during its own site assessments, including observing an MOT. At the end of every visit, garages are provided with certification and a verbal and written report, together with recommendations on how to remain compliant and reduce risk.

This MOTQC service is only available to RMI members, so if you don’t already have a process in place or feel that your business could be falling short on compliance please give us a call on 01788 538303 to find out how we can help you.

For a copy of the special notice, please contact Louise Woods: Louise.Woods@rmif.co.uk
