I will have owned it for 10 months when we move
How strickt is an MFK? It passed its last MOT with some welding, but no other advisories but it is a transit van of a certain age (11 years).

I have also read about needing Certificates of Conformity for importing vehicles which aren't standard, but as I did the conversion myself I don't have one.
You probably have seen a small ID plate riveted onto the engine bulkhead which is the type number of the vehicle. They can look this number up and see there was a CC issued.
In 1990 I imported my wife's 1985 Fiat Uno from Germany with a 60HP motor that had never been sold in Switzerland. I had to ask my garage to write to Turin for the engine emissions specification, and then there was no problem issuing the exhaust certificate. So don't worry too much. There can be big problems with exotic cars, but a Transit shouldn't be a problem if it is clean.
