Is EGR de-activating 'standard' on remaps?

I know my 1.9 JTD 16v is remapped, but i'm not sure if the EGR is de-activated.
Is this fairly common practice on remaps in general? Is there a way to confirm the closed EGR? Perhaps by checking for fairly cold EGR plumbing?

It is now the better remapers do it . one way you could check buy a blanking plate off e bay and blank EGR off not a difficult job. If you get a dash light on its not deleted if not it is .You delelte through ECU tell it not to open.Had mine done when I remaped then I blanked it off at both ends its best way to go as the EGR can give you a lot problems car runs loads better without it no down side at all

Btw suppose the check engine light does pop, is this an easy fix for a random chiptuner? Is it a 'simple bit-flip' or is it much more complicated?

If light comes on and you remove the blanking plate after 4 or 5 starts the light should go out Is there no way you can find out who did the remap that would be the easy way to solve your problem
