SANY join CESAR ECV programme


Security and emission compliance verification system now fitted to full range of UK machines

SANY have become the latest construction machinery distributor in the UK to fit CESAR and Emission Compliance Verification (ECV) as standard to their full range of machinery.

Business development director Leigh Harris commented: ‘We’re delighted to announce that SANY have joined the CESAR ECV programme. This initiative clearly demonstrates our ongoing responsibility to address the concerns of our customers over the security of their equipment and is an important step forward as we advance the SANY product range here in the UK and Ireland. Also, the ECV system provides another level of identification to quickly deliver emissions information across all of our machines.’


CESAR is the official construction and agricultural equipment security and registration scheme, owned by the CEA (Construction Equipment Association) and supported by the police, local authorities, equipment manufacturers, major insurers, and finance companies, among others.

The official CESAR scheme was launched in 2007 and has since established itself as one of the most successful anti-theft systems available, with its power as a theft deterrent having been well proven. The CESAR system uses a range of state-of-the-art technology to give each piece of equipment a unique fingerprint that aids with the identification and recovery of stolen equipment, with marked machines twice as likely to be recovered as unmarked ones.

Since 1 August 2022, CESAR and ECV have been fitted as standard across the full range of SANY machines arriving in the UK.

Kevin Howells, managing director of Datatag, said: ‘During the last 20 years, I’ve witnessed the extraordinary growth of the SANY Group and how it has diversified into many key sectors, manufacturing some of the best equipment on the market.

‘SANY have looked to adopt the latest technologies and innovations across their ever-expanding range and global manufacturing facilities and I’m delighted that they have decided to protect their customers’ machinery by fitting, as standard, the official CESAR security scheme and programme, and to support the important drive towards lower emissions and cleaner air with the adoption of the industry-owned CESAR ECV initiative.’
