Rear Marker Plates VSB12 for Heavy Vehicles have a change this year, 2020. Indeed, by the end of 2020, Marker Plates on new heavy vehicles or trailers, will all need to be Class 400 (class 1) Reflective. Meanwhile, if you need replacement plates now, you should use the Class 1 version. This includes the ‘Do Not Overtake Turning Vehicle’ plates. Also, all other plates including Cat 31L, 41, Cat 81, Cat 161 and Cat 615 are affected. Marker Plates must comply with AS4001.1. You can read the standards here: Click here.

Class 2 reflective plates will discontinue by December 2020. Ultimately, this means if you will need to change your old markers to the new class 400 when the service life expires, they must comply. In reality, this is pretty important for the heavy vehicle industry. Indeed, there are figures that suggest 60% of existing rear markers are class 2 reflective at time of writing. Note: you can continue with your old class 2 retroreflective plates into 2021 if they are in good condition. Read up on the reflective materials HERE
