Hauliers told again not to tamper with exhaust after treatment systems

Hauliers could end up before a traffic commissioner at a public inquiry if they’re found to have tampered with the exhaust emissions values on their manufacturer’s plate, the DVSA has warned.

The agency said its vehicle standards assessors have picked up on small numbers of HGVs being presented for annual test with some form of tampering carried out to the exhaust emissions data recorded on the vehicle manufacturer’s plate.

It said operators had been reported to the traffic commissioner for public inquiry consideration and it warned hauliers against the practice.
