There's an enquiry form on the TFL/ULEZ web site, I'd start there.
e.g. My car is Euro 4 compliant but isn't shown as exempt....

Thanks for quick repiles. I should have sorted this out sooner
I found the answer, they need a letter from Audi's homologation department showing it is Euro 4 emailed to the link Andrew posted. I have sent Audi the email already.
Some info on this forum:

What a bit of luck that late D2s are exempt!

I had to send them a PDF of my V5 for the D4 and theyve now added it to the ULEZ register, but they took their time doing it!

My problem is trickier, I don't think my Euro rating is on my V5, I remember they couldn't find the right emissions so they put it on some generic category.

I have heard from the lovely people at Audi, we have to send an email to this address for a certificate to show to the ULEZ people.

Ancient thread resurrection.
My S8, after initially not showing as exempt has been recorded as ULEZ compatible for a long while.
But, prompted by a discussion in another forum, I recently requested my "Certificate of Conformity" from VAG and it arrived (PDF by email) today.
The covering "letter" incidentally does state that my car is Euro3 and looking at the details I "think" it just misses Euro4 due to HC levels.
However London's ULEZ only requires petrol cars to meet the NOx standard not full Euro4 and it's well within that. NOx 0.043, well below the 0.08 requirement.

I read someone about this on one of the Facebook groups, where a user had requested this 'certificate of conformity' and Audi allegedly refused. Can't remember the specifics, but it would have been an A8/S8 they were talking about.

Information here, though it's currently down! https://www.audi.co.uk/uk/web/en/ass...d-exports.html
Edit: temporary, Ok now!
I just gave them all the required details in an email and, after a number of automated acknowledgements, it arrived. In German. Obviously.

Edit: Printed version (on Audi watermarked paper!) arrived in the post today from Audi MK - handwritten address on the envelope!
