The Motorcycle Industry Association has appointed Mark Fowler (pictured) to a newly-created position of head of technical and regulatory affairs, reporting directly to MCIA chief executive Tony Campbell.

The role’s primary objective is to support members and provide them with expert advice and guidance in areas including whole vehicle standards, components and PPE regulation. Previously, this area of expertise was outsourced to an external agency. color:#666666″>

Fowler is clearly well-equipped for the task, having just spent five years in a senior technical role at the government’s Vehicle Certification Agency. Prior to that, his CV featured a variety of positions with high-profile automotive and aeronautical companies at locations around the world, having started his career as an airframe technician with the RAF. color:#666666″>

The organisation sees Fowler’s arrival as timely, given it is currently engaged in protecting members’ interests during both the coronavirus outbreak and EU exit, as well as gaining clarity from government about the Euro 4 phase-out due at the end of this year.   color:#666666″>

Commenting on the appointment, MCIA supremo Campbell said: “Our members look to us to lobby government in order to protect our industry and to provide advice and guidance when new regulation and legislation is introduced. In our constantly changing environment it is vital that we are always ahead of the game with technical regulation matters and consequently I am very pleased to welcome Mark to the team.”   color:#666666″>
