The Construction & Agricultural Equipment Security and Registration Scheme is promoted by the AEA and the Construction Equipment Association (CEA). It is powered by Datatag ID technology and accredited and supported by a wide range of organisations.

Police CPI & Home Office Approved.

The CESAR Scheme is the only official Police CPI and HO approved plant and equipment registration scheme. The CESAR scheme was designed by Police Officers working in partnership with the Construction and Agricultural industries to provide Police on the street an easy simple and effective way to identify all manners of machinery and equipment. The criteria is such that the CESAR database operates on secure systems to the same level as both the Police and Home Office systems.
The new Home Office Document ‘Security Guidance Document for Agricultural and Construction Plant 64/09 specifically recommends all machinery be fitted with CESAR registration.

24/7 Access to database allow verification and provenance.

The primary aim of the CESAR scheme is to provide an easy way of identifying farm machinery simply and easily. The CESAR registration database is accessible 24 hours/day/365 days a year to provide support to police officers who are making enquiries at the roadside about equipment stopped in suspicious circumstances with persons they suspect may have stolen it. Equipment can be checked and instantly the ownership of a machine can be determined.

Insurance approved

The CESAR scheme has been tested and approved by the British Insurance test house Thatcham and the majority of major UK Insurers are starting to request CESAR fitment. Substantial premium discounts and reductions in mandatory excesses can be obtained by having CESAR fitted to your equipment.
