Ah yes, you're booked in the day before me aren't you!
That section is particularly badly worded (even by IVA manual standards!), so hopefully it is all a fuss over nothing.
Let us know know what IVA man says.

spoke to my local iva tester today over phone and he confirmed what i was thinking

if your fog only works with dip and main or front fogs there is nothing to worry about

if your fog works with side only you need to worry about the notes with buzzer etc.
its more for mass produced cars that dont meet the std fog only on with dip/main or f/fogs.

On the foglight subject,I tested a ford ka the other day and interestingly the fog light goes out and will not light again if you turn the lights off,the switch must be pressed again with the lights on to make it work,may be a way out aof problems if someone can explain how its wired up.

Spoke to the IVA tester, and the bloke that seems to supervise them, about this at my test today.
They admitted that it's poorly worded and said it should be changed in the next version of the manual.
Essentially we don't need to worry about it. Like Baz says, it only applies if the fog can stay on with side lights (which it shouldn't really!).

its an easy fix on a late sierra stalks setup tap onto the brown/black wire that is in the loom to the stalks this is earthed only in step 2 of the light stalk
feed this to the coil of a relay then take a fused ign feed to the other side of the relay coil then use the contacts of this new relay to break the feed to your fog light switch

this way you will only have the fog light working with sides,ign and headlight dip or main
