E mark on lense for mot?

Does anyone know if for an MOT the headlight and rear light lenses need an E mark on them?

Think E mark would have been required for IVA, which does not necessarily follow for MoT but perhaps and MoT tester could look at compliance with vehicle construction and use regs?

I would not be surprised that as long as all the lights operate in the correct manner, are in the correct position (or not very obviously too low) with no cracks or highly faded coloured lenses, and not too weak bulbs and bulbs matched with the same power and type bulb the other side, and headlamp beam adjusted correctly for main and dip beam, then MoT tester will be happy.

Are you thinking of changing lights? Unless something very unusual you may find what you want will be E marked anyway (and replacement easily available). E mark may keep an insurance assessor happy for an accident.

Cheers
Mike

No E marks for IVA either. Only the rear fog requires the E(f) or E(b) mark.

Wording for lamps other than rear fog is something along lines of must emit light of a colour and brightness comaprible to an Emarked equivalent.

I noticed there was an update to the m1 iva manual 1st april 2022, which indicates headlights should be E marked.
