Daytime running lights - required?

Having ordered a new Suzuki Swift for March delivery, I cannot find out whether DRL's will be fitted. What is the legal date of manufacture when these lights have to be fitted please?
Many thanks in advance.

I thought they had to be fitted already under the EC Directive, but this does not seem to necessarily be the case.

Cheap road tax and economical. Base-model is well equipped. Five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating. Swift Sport is great fun.
