ECE104 Reflective Tapes

From July 1999, ECE R104 Conspicuity Markings was introduced as a mandatory requirement on HGV’s and subsequent amendments to the South African regulation (Reg,192A) included busses, taxis, caravans and trailers. However, even without the regulatory requirement, many Fleet Managers realise that reflective markings on vehicles help to prevent accidents and save lives, reduce vehicle downtime and repairs, protect staff on the road and in the depot, and present a more professional image to customers.

ECE104 Explained

ECE R104 applies to registered HGVs with a mass over 3.5 tonnes, busses, taxis, caravans and trailers. The regulation defines the standard for reflective material that can be used, and where it must be placed on the vehicle.
