The repair may not be acceptable as it may be seen as a temporary repair and could fail in the future and as it is safety related they may take a dim view.
Maybe you should ask the question of yourself can you see it as a safe repair and unlikely to fail.

The VOSA guidelines state reason for failure as:- vacuum pipe deteriorated
, kinked, split, collapsed, excessively chafed,
