I am looking at this as a preventative thing, if the EGR valve gets clogged up, then a once a year clean would do no harm if its a simple enough thing.

I suspect it wont be, and will not be something I will be able to do but have to ask.
I believe Haynes recommend EGR should be part of regular maintainence. Can't remember recommended mileage though ...
