Equipment registration

What is TER Registration?

The logging of equipment fleet and owner details on TER’s database.

What data is required?

Why use TER Registration? 

  1. So that equipment fleet data is available to the police to check 24/7 to monitor the movement of equipment on the national roads network and through ports. 
  2. In addition, TER can make matches when the equipment is passing through auctions.  
  3. Companies registering their equipment can also access premium discount benefits offered by their insurers, who recognise that TER Registration is effective risk management.  Some insurers will not cover a ‘risk’ unless they are registered with TER. 
  4. The provision of the equipment fleet data to TER also allows TER to check that none of the equipment is stolen, to assess the total value of the fleet and, where agreed, to pass this data to the Subscriber’s insurer.

How does TER Registration work? 

Potential subscribers register with TER by entering their details on the Registration Agreement, and sending it to TER with the appropriate payment.  TER issues them with their Subscriber Number, the Subscriber downloads the data entry spreadsheet, enters their fleet data and emails the spreadsheet to TER, remembering to keep their fleet data held by TER up to date as they buy and sell.

How much does TER Registration cost?

  • Up to five items is free
  • Six to ten items is £50.00 plus VAT per annum
  • Over eleven items is £150.00 plus VAT per annum

How much owned equipment data does TER have registered? 

Approaching 1,000,000 owned items valued at around £3.4BN.  TER has more plant and equipment data than any organisation in Europe.
