New Update on BS AU 145e:2018 Specification for Retroreflecting Number Plates
20 March 2019
BSI published this new specification on 1st March 2018 with the intention of it updating and replacing BS AU 145d (published 1998).
DVLA have expressly confirmed that they want to go ahead and introduce the improved standard BS AU 145e as soon as possible. This requires an amendment to the The Road Vehicles (Display of Registration Marks) Regulations 2001.
DVLA are currently working on finalising the wording of this amendment and obtaining the parliamentary slot required in order to bring it into effect.
