Re: IVA - Ignition Switches and Immobilisers
From the latest issue of Kit Car: "...it is a requirement for all kit cars to be fitted with some type of anti theft device in addition to the ignition key. This can be mechanical or electronic, but a battery isolation switch or removable steering wheel is not acceptable. If you have a steering column lock which is activated once you remove the ignition key, you are home and dry. If your ignition key is directly on the dashboard, an additional device is required. This can be in the form of an electronic immobiliser but requires documentary evidence from your kit manufacturer or device installer to prove the point. Accepted installer certificates are VSIB and MESF.
Alarms are optional but, if one is fitted, you must present a Category 1 immobiliser certificate to the above standards."
