Towbars and the Law
European law states that all light passenger vehicles registered on or after 1st August 1998 require a type approved towbar tested to EC94/20 standard and towball with suitable D & S value. This is not retrospective and does not affect any vehicle registered prior to that date. Other vehicles not subject to type approval are commercial vehicles, car derived vans and motor caravans. Type approval towbars are tested and approved by the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA).

Towbar Quality Standards
Towbars are designed with the aid of the latest CAD systems to ensure precision of mounting, ease of fit and unobtrusive appearance. In addition, all towbars comply with international standard ISO 1102 and British Standard BS AU 113 which specifies the dimensions and locations of towball to ensure a safe and level towing height of between 350mm and 420mm (ground to centre of towball).

Electrics Quality Standards
With effect from 1st October 2002 all towing electrics fitted to type approved vehicles manufactured after 1st January 1996 must be tested and conform to EC95/54 standard for electromagnetic compatibility. Commercial vehicles are exempt from these regulations.
