Energy Efficiency (Vehicle Fuel Economy Labelling) Regulations 2007

6 Motor vehicle traders must display fuel economy labels for certain motor vehicles on display
  • (1) This regulation applies to a motor vehicle if—

    • (a) a motor vehicle trader offers the vehicle for sale by displaying it at any location; and

    • (b) any fuelsaver information is available for the vehicle when the trader first displays the vehicle.

    (2) This regulation also applies to a motor vehicle if—

    • (a) a motor vehicle trader displays the vehicle (promotional vehicle) at any location to promote the sale of any other vehicle of the same or similar type; and

    • (b) any fuelsaver information is available for the promotional vehicle when the trader first displays the vehicle.

    (3) However, this regulation does not apply to—

    • (a) a motor vehicle offered for sale, if the vehicle is offered for sale only to other motor vehicle traders; or

    • (b) a promotional vehicle, if the promotional vehicle is displayed only to promote the sale of any other vehicle or vehicles of the same or similar type to other motor vehicle traders.

    (4) The motor vehicle trader must display at the location a fuel economy label for all vehicles to which this regulation applies (whether vehicles offered for sale under subclause (1), promotional vehicles under subclause (2), or both).

    (5) The fuel economy label for a vehicle must be displayed—

    • (a) clearly and prominently; and

    • (b) so that its text can be read from a reasonable distance; and

    • (c) so that it obviously relates to the vehicle, for example, by—

      • (i) firmly attaching the label to the vehicle so that it is clearly visible from outside the vehicle; or

      • (ii) displaying the label on an information stand next to the vehicle.

    (6) In this regulation, fuel economy label, in relation to a motor vehicle, means a label—

    • (a) printed in the form set out in Schedule 1 (colour) or Schedule 2 (greyscale), so it is at least 196 mm wide and 136 mm high; and

    • (b) that includes the fuelsaver information available for the vehicle when the motor vehicle trader first displays the vehicle (or information updated in accordance with regulation 9 or 10), with that information printed in each appropriate space on the label in a font size appropriate for the size of the space (as in the example set out in Schedule 3).
