CESAR - the UK's anti-theft initiative explained

06 November 2008

The UK’s Construction Equipment Association (CEA) is the lead organisation for the Construction Equipment Security and Registration (CESAR) construction equipment registration scheme for the Plant Theft Action Group (PTAG) - and Datatag is the service provider. It is hoped that registration, combined with Datatag's technology, will both deter theft and make recovery of stolen construction equipment easier. CESAR is a voluntary scheme, although indications are that some site managers and specifiers will stipulate machines used on their projects will require registration and marking. Manufacturers can either fit the CESAR kit as standard or as an option for their customers. Alternatively, they may nominate their approved distributors to undertake the fitting on new equipment and that already in operation. Datatag and the CEA offer briefings, training and advice, as the CESAR kit can only be fitted by an authorised installer.
