Datatag has been protecting assets from motorcycles to JCBs and everything in between for 25 years now and is the chosen technology partner to the three largest official security registration schemes in the UK – CESAR (the CEA and AEA scheme for construction plant and agricultural machines), MASTER (the MCIA scheme for motorcycles and scooters) and COMPASS (the BMF scheme for boats and outboard engines).
Theft of boats and equipment has become a major problem in the UK, and the Police face an almost impossible task in tackling the marine crime wave. Security measures in the marine world are usually inadequate compared to those found on most cars, making marinas an easy target for thieves. The biggest problem is that neither the Police nor prospective purchasers can tell the difference between legitimate and stolen property.
Datatag’s unique multi layered technological approach to identification consists of a range of electronic transponders, microdots and visible ID labels (a bit like a car number plate) that contain unique identification numbers. The Datatag PWC Theft Protection Kit makes your PWC easy to identify and therefore much less attractive to thieves.
All the Police have to do to establish or confirm the registered keeper of a craft is call the 24/7 secure contact centre with the visible ID number or, having scanned the craft, the unique transponder code. There’s no lengthy laboratory testing and the identification technologies have an indefinite life meaning once a system is fitted it’s fitted for life.
Since its introduction Datatag has seen reductions in theft rates for all Datatagged assets including Personal Watercraft. At the same time recovery rates for stolen equipment which has been tagged have soared and numerous convictions have been secured thanks to Datatag.
Due to the effectiveness of Datatag, all manufacturers fit these technologies as standard in the UK. You may find that you will not be allowed access to some slipways without having a Datatag system fitted, or being the current registered owner.
Don’t forget that when you buy a second hand craft that you must re-register with Datatag to receive all the benefits that the system offers.
Uniquely in the PWC world, Datatag also acts as the main form of registration. This allows PWC clubs, insurers and Marine Authorities (Police and Harbour Masters) to verify ownership of a craft through either the Visible ID numbers and/or the Datatag transponders (more commonly called RFID or tags).
BRP manufactures SEA-DOO, the world leader in Personal Water Craft (PWC), powered by the Rotax powertrain (another BRP company).
