2. You may accept or decline your entitlement anytime during the en Primeur period (usually about 2 months). If you accept all or part of your entitlement, this forms the basis of your entitlement for the following year. If you decline your entitlement this may reduce your entitlement the following year, If you decline your entitlement in 2 consecutive years your en Primeur registration will lapse and may be allocated to other registered VEP members.
