Front and Rear Number Plate Components

Tested & Certified to British Standards

British Standard Number Plates

We always follow best practices and industry standards to deliver our solutions. In fact we operate with one aim, to provide number plates, systems and components compliant with current British Standards. While following all regulations for manufacturers & providers.

To deliver this goal, we carry out in-house testing on our number plates & components. And we submit samples for official third-party accreditation and certification. Only then do we make our components available for the industry to purchase. Alongside our testing regime, we are members of the BNMA and contribute to technical advisory groups on number plates.

All of this, while working with our customers and the DVLA to ensure legal compliance.

BSAU145e Rollout

The new British Standard for number plates, BSAU145e, became mandatory on the 1st September 2021. This revision includes the biggest raft of changes to the regulations since 2001.  But we are ready, our software has been updated and our plate constructions tested & certified. If your software hasn’t been updated, your number plates may not be legal. To book your upgrade please contact our Customer Services team now.
