Reflective Strip Rigid Sided Vehicles
ECE104 is a regulation that establishes guidelines for the use of retro-reflective safety markings on heavy goods vehicles operating throughout Europe. Since July 2011, all newly registered HGVs over 7.5 tonnes and trailers over 3.5 tonnes operating in the UK, are required by law to be fitted with homolgated retro-reflective markings. These must clearly outline the rear and sides of the vehicle to make it visible for up to 1000 metres in low light conditions. ECE104 specifies the standard for the reflective materials used and where and how it must be positioned on the vehicle or trailer.
