Conspicuity Tape

 From July 2011, all newly registered HGVs over 7.5 tonnes and trailers over 3.5 tonnes must have reflective conspicuity markings that clearly outline the rear and sides of the vehicle to make it visible for up to 1000 metres at night. ECE104 specifies the standard for the reflective materials used, and where an how it must be positioned on the vehicle or trailer.
