"Under current legislative proposals, vehicle manufacturers will be responsible for the disposal of End of Life Vehicles. This could lead to a conflict regarding the availability of essential core materials that the independent sector needs in order to deliver a wide range of remanufactured parts to the automotive aftermarket. It's only one of a growing number of threats that the remanufacturing sector faces in the next few years" he says. A recent SMMT report about remanufacturing was given a cautious welcome by the Federation, which felt it represented views that were strongly vehicle-manufacturer orientated. FER plans to use the remanufacturing sector's recycling qualities as the focus of a UK and international campaign to raise awareness about the services provided by its membership network. The membership also includes manufacturers and distributors of automotive components.
