Ensuring the industry is considered in policy making to create the right market conditions



We operate in a highly legislated industry.  From issues such as Type Approval, End of Series arrangements, Personal Protective Equipment and Driving Licence Directives through to unintended consequences of other seemingly unrelated legislation, the MCIA team represents Members and protects the industry's interests.

MCIA Members receive updates regarding proposed changes to legislation and/or technical requirements, providing an early warning system with advice on how to plan and prepare for changes.

Representing approximately 90% of the supply side of the industry, MCIA is regarded by government as the voice of the sector.

When working with MCIA, government and its agencies can be confident they are receiving a fully considered view of the sector and its needs.  As the membership base grows so does the MCIA's authority.

MCIA always works closely in consultation with members to understand impacts and requirements before it forms a position.

MCIA leads and contributes to many projects and meetings within government and key stakeholder groups e.g. DVLA, DVSA, TfL and also in Europe through ACEM .  

Relationships with key government officials are continually developed to ensure motorcycling and the industry is considered and included in policy making.

Motorcycle Sport Political Strategy Group

In collaboration with sports organising bodies ACU and AMCA, MCIA established the Motorcycle Sport Political Strategy Group.

The group seeks to protect access to land, by addressing misunderstanding, highlighting the economic and social value generated and challenging any proposed legislation that could be damaging.  

The Group reports and consults with MCIA members who attend Off Road Group meetings twice per annum.
