All information on the Plate, or otherwise supplied to the public, must be true and correct for that specific vehicle. Many owner/buyers have not been aware of the consumer-protection provided by the Trade Practices Act until January 2011, when the Australian Consumer Law became uniform legislation.

Before registering a trailer or caravan, the manufacturer must affix a vehicle plate to the trailer. The vehicle plate provides a clear indication to the State and Territory registering authority - and to owners and the general public - that the trailer is ready for road use.

The vehicle plate also provides useful information about the specifications of the trailer. The vehicle plate must be durable, non-corrosive metal or anodized aluminum, must be affixed to the vehicle in a position where it may be readily examined. All our plates are able to be easily pop riveted and attached with our premium adhesive.

All our plates meet Australian Standards and approve with the following statement: "This trailer was manufactured to comply with the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989".

All information on the plate from the public is assumed to be correct and factual when for that specific vehicle. Compliance Plates Australia does not hold any responsibility if there is an error. Many owners/buyers have not been aware of the customer-protection provided by the Trade Practices Act until January 2011, when the Australian Consumer Law became a uniform legislation.
