New Categories for Vehicle Trackers
As from 1st January 2019 Thatcham research, the independent body which certifies tracking systems, is no longer supporting the CAT 5, CAT 6 or CAT 7 TQA categories.
The All New S7 TSC and S5 TSC Vehicle Tracker Categories
The CAT 5, CAT 6 or CAT 7 TQA categories will now be replaced with the new S7 TSC and S5 TSC categories, although it’s likely there will be some crossover depending on the insurance underwriter.
If you have previously had a CAT 5 tracker fitted to your vehicle, it will now be recognised and be compliant as an S5 for insurance purposes. If your CAT 5 tracker includes remote engine immobilisation it will be in the category of CAT 5+.
If you have previously had a CAT 6 tracker fitted to your vehicle, it will now be compliant and referred to as an S7.
If you have any queries about your existing equipment please contact your installer for more details.
