The proposals are also likely to cover bodyshop activities, requiring repairers to devote as much time and attention to dismantling and recycling parts as manufacturers have to do at the end of a vehicle's life. David Wallace, managing director of Acoat Bodyshop Services, said: 'The increases which the EC is proposing are quite dramatic. They will mean that many components which are simply discarded now will have to be returned to the manufacturer or other recycling agent. This will involve a cost which will probably be added to the price of components.'
