ECE104 Reflective Tapes

From July 2011, regulation ECE104 has made it mandatory to apply approved reflective tapes to certain heavy goods vehicles. Many Fleet Managers realise that reflective markings on vehicles help to prevent accidents and save lives, reduce vehicle downtime and repairs, protect employees on the road and in the depot, and present a more professional image to customers.

ECE104 Explained

Regulation ECE104 applies to newly registered HGVs with a mass over 7.5 tonnes and trailers with a mass over 3.5 tonnes operating in the UK. The regulation defines the standard for reflective material that can be used, and where it must be placed on the vehicle.
