The National Traction Engine Trust

The Trust has been asked what action the General Council would take if an authorised event were to ask for the NTET Certificate of Competency as an entry requirement?

At the 2008 Annual General Meeting  a motion was placed before the meeting.

That any authorised rally found to be requiring drivers and operators of steam vehicles to hold a voluntary Certificate of competency as a condition of exhibit entry has its authorization reviewed.

This motion was rejected by the membership. Therefore the mandate from the membership requires no action to be taken by the NTET General Council should any authorised rally organiser choose to make exhibitor entry conditional on holding a Certificate of Competency.

However, any such development would be of concern to the General Council as this would jeopardize the voluntary nature of the Certificate of Competency. Enquiries would be made of the rally organiser as to why they had taken this action.
