star this property answer text <p>Designation of a country is based on an assessment of driver training and testing standards in that country to ensure that they are comparable with those in this country. A full assessment is carried out prior to the designation of each country. The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) requests relevant information about the country’s testing and licensing systems. This is then passed to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) for consideration and approval. If the decision is made to designate the country, the law is then amended to include the new country.</p><p> </p><p>The table below shows when each designated country was fully assessed:</p><p> </p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Date of Last full Assessment</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Designated Country</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1984</p></td><td><p>Australia; Hong Kong; New Zealand; Singapore; Switzerland</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1985</p></td><td><p>Barbados; British Virgin Islands; Zimbabwe; Japan</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1999</p></td><td><p>South Africa; Canada</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2002</p></td><td><p>Republic of Korea; Monaco</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2004</p></td><td><p>Falkland Islands</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2007</p></td><td><p>Faroe Islands</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013</p></td><td><p>Andorra</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p>When reviewing these arrangements the DVLA contacts each country and requests updated information about the country’s testing and licensing systems. When changes are identified, information is passed to the DVSA for further consideration and approval.</p><p> </p><p>A review of Canada, Falkland Islands, Monaco, Republic of Korea and Zimbabwe was carried out in January 2014 and the remaining designated countries (Australia, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Faroe Islands, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa and Switzerland) are currently under review. To date, it has not been necessary to refer a designated country to the DVSA for full reassessment.</p><p> </p><p>In the last 10 years the Faroe Islands (2007) and Andorra (2013) have been designated for driving licence exchange in Great Britain. To date, only one country has been de-designated, this was Kenya in 2002.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Public Health England (PHE) and its predecessor organisations first issued advice on these matters to the then Department for Trade and Industry in October 1997 suggesting that laser products on general sale to the public should be limited to Class 1 or Class 2. This advice is still relevant. Trading Standards Officers use existing powers under the General Product Safety Regulations to take enforcement action against traders in the United Kingdom supplying high-power laser products, which are usually Class 3B or Class 4.</p><p> </p><p>Following the publication of the paper in the journal Eye, PHE organised a workshop on 20 June 2014. This brought together two of the authors of the paper and stakeholders from across Government, the police and experts on the health implications of exposure to laser beams. PHE agrees with the journal article that it is important parents are aware of the risks of laser products to their children. It was felt that the most appropriate course of action was a campaign to increase awareness of the risks associated with the use of these lasers, including the likelihood that the power in the laser beam could be significantly higher than stated. PHE is now preparing additional material to inform the public.</p><p> </p><p>The ability to impair the vision of a pilot or a vehicle driver depends on the colour of the laser beam, the ambient light conditions and the task being undertaken. Although Class 1 or Class 2 lasers are unlikely to impair the vision of a pilot, under specific conditions, they can cause distraction, glare and afterimages to drivers targeted at close range. Therefore, any inappropriate use of a laser, irrespective of the laser classification, should be taken seriously.</p><p> </p>
