To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what rules apply to the use of bull bars on cars in the UK. (155961)

Since 25 May 2007, the requirements of EC Directive 2005/66/EC, concerning bull bars, apply to all new cars being registered under the type approval scheme. Similarly, all bull bars offered for sale as an accessory must be approved and carry an approval mark.

Bull bars fitted before this date are subject to the general safety requirements of the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986.
