ECE 104 – Its Law! are you Ready?

ECE 104 became law on10th July 2011, be aware that the safety of your drivers and other road users depend upon being able to be clearly seen on our fast highways. Get HGV and trailers compliant with the new law and keep all road users safe.

The Regulations

ECE 104 is the law that establishes the rules for the use of reflective highway visibility safety marking tape on HGVs operating throughout Europe. Already in force in several countries,the law was due to take effect in October 2009 but to reduce regulatory costs on vehicle manufacturers and the haulage industry, this measure will not now become mandatory for new vehicle registrations until 10 July 2011: From 10th July 2011, newly approved types of heavy goods vehicles (HGV’s) with a mass over 7.5 tonnes and trailers with a mass over 3.5 tonnes operating in the UK, will by law be required to fit retro-reflective vehicle safety markings.

From 10th July 2011, all newly registered HGV’s with a mass over 7.5 tonnes and trailers with a mass over 3.5 tonnes operating in the UK, will be required by law to be fitted with retro-reflective vehicle safety markings.

Make sure you fit our ECE104 approved reflective markings to all your vehicles

ECE104 vehicle safety markings require 50mm to 60mm wide strips of highly reflective material to be applied to the rear and sides of vehicles, so that trucks and trailers are more visible to other road users from a distance of up to 1000 metres at night. This ensures that commercial vehicles can be seen by motorway drivers up to 8-9 seconds earlier than would otherwise be the case and as such is a key development in reducing risk on busy roads.
