The UK’s (CEA) Construction Equipment Association’s, Construction & Agricultural Equipment Security and Registration Scheme (CESAR) is set to exhibit at Bauma for the third time in April.

Supported by the Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA) and a wide range of other trade bodies, including the CPA, and powered by Datatag technology CESAR is credited with making a huge contribution towards the reduction in equipment theft in the UK, which according to police statistics is down by over 50% compared to 2007 when the innovative scheme was launched.

CESAR and Datatag ID Limited will exhibit in the British Pavilion (stand B5.227/F adjacent to Komatsu), which is organised by the CEA, at the giant Bauma exhibition which brings together the global industry for construction equipment in its entire breadth and depth. Held on a 575,000 square meter site bauma 2013 was the largest trade show in the world when a total of 3,421 exhibitors from 57 countries, and 535,065 visitors from over 200 countries converged on Munich for the event. And Bauma 2016 is set to be larger still.

Since the CESAR Scheme was launched in 2007 UK equipment theft is down by 57%. The security initiative is made up of state of the art Datatag technology including warning/registration labels, RFID tags, Datadots and forensic DNA. Many major equipment manufacturers, including Doosan, John Deere, JCB, Manitou and Merlo have adopted CESAR and fit it as standard to new machinery sold in the UK. Most major UK insurers support the scheme and offer up to 25% discount on insurance premiums for CESAR marked equipment.
