UK Derogations

Manufacturers continue to be able to apply for a niche volume or small volume derogation from the overall CO2 emission target. 

To ensure that manufacturers continue to qualify for the same style of derogation that they have previously qualified for in the EU, the derogation thresholds have been amended by SI 2020/1418.  For both cars and vans, manufacturers will receive individual thresholds based on the percentage of EU sales in 2017 that occurred in the UK, and on the original EU derogation thresholds of 300,000/10,000 cars and 22,000 vans.  

The VCA will only grant derogation applications for Northern Ireland from January 2024.
