Datatag ID renewed their membership with Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative, recently and looks to expand the range accredited products.

Accreditation with SBD requires products to be subjected to rigorous testing and additionally be fully certificated by an independent, third-party certification body accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) before being allowed to carry the SBD logo - this onerous process is the only way for companies to obtain police accreditation for security-related products in the UK.

Datatag is proud to have achieved accredited status for wide range of its products including those for motorcycles, marine craft and engines, construction plant, agricultural machinery, cars, personal watercraft and trailers.

Kevin Howells, MD at Datatag said: "We're proud to be members of SBD. Their work in promoting best practice in security is vital in the ongoing challenge to combat theft and we are proud to display our membership and product accreditations wherever we can."

The heart of Datatag’s systems is a layered security marking approach employing a variety of covert and also overt marking technologies which makes the job of removing the identification of an asset an almost impossible task. Visible tamper evident warning labels, UV etches, RFID transponders, microscopic ‘Datadots’ and a forensic DNA solution in combination means that the lawful owner of any Datatagged property can always be identified by the Police, even if all other identification numbers have been removed.

Datatag’s secure database of marked assets (also SBD accredited) can be accessed by the Police and other selected official bodies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, giving them immediate access to the information they need in the fight against crime.
