For its distributors, UAN ensures a security of freedom to explore new ideas and opportunities and where, without fear of recrimination, everyone can confidently claim that being “the best” is more about embracing professionalism and not cheaper prices.

IAAF - Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation

The Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF) is an umbrella organisation for the entire automotive aftermarket.

Currently, the IAAF is lobbying the government to drop its proposals to reduce the frequency of MoT tests. The IAAF says: “Currently vehicles are tested when they reach the third anniversary of registration, and are then tested annually (so called 3-1-1). The government (DfT) has proposed a change to first test at four years and then retest every other year (4-2-2) and claim it would "reduce the burden on the motorist". It is hard to see what this 'burden' is. The maximum fee for a test is £54.85 and many test stations charge a great deal less. The test is a vital part of keeping the UK's cars safe, road-worthy and environmentally compliant. Any reduction in testing would lead to increased road casualties (deaths and serious injuries), increased pollution, and have employment consequences.  All of which has been supported by independent and reliable research.”
