“We’re delighted to join the Secured by Design initiative and are pleased to gain this recognition"
The UK marking scheme for touring caravans and motorhomes, VIN CHIP™, has joined the official police security initiative Secured by Design, making it a Police Preferred Specification accredited product.
VIN CHIP™ is part of CCN Leisure, a group of businesses that promote and support the leisure vehicle industry in the UK.
VIN CHIP™ is an anti-theft identification system for leisure vehicles and provides an essential part of work to disrupt criminal activity. VIN CHIP™ have been using radio frequency identification, known as 'RFID' technology since 1998. Each RFID chip holds the unique 17 digit VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) and links directly to the Central Registration and Identification Scheme (CRiS).
VIN CHIP™ provide highly visible security labels that display the VIN and a unique QR code that warn criminals that the vehicle is VIN CHIP™ protected. VIN CHIP™ scanners are issued to Police and Law Enforcement agencies who work closely with VIN CHIP™, and even if criminals seek to re-identify the leisure vehicle, the RFID chip will still reveal its true identity, providing a fast and reliable process of confirmation.
Lyn Poole, Secured by Design, said: "I'm really pleased to see that VIN CHIP™ LTD have joined the Secured by Design family of member companies, bringing on board their VIN CHIP Caravan & Motorhome Anti-Theft ID System as a Police Preferred Specification accredited product. I have known about this product for years, as when I bought a caravan it was marked and registered on the Central Registration and Identification Scheme (CRiS). I felt reassured and safe in the fact that if it was stolen there was an excellent chance it would be identified and returned. I look forward to working with VIN CHIP™ LTD over the coming years."
John Lally, VIN CHIP™ commented “We’re delighted to join the Secured by Design initiative and are pleased to gain this recognition for what we know to be a fantastic product that benefits its customers and gives them the peace of mind they need to feel safe about the security of their valued leisure vehicle.”
