The European requirements became mandatory under European Law from the 1st January 1998 and were implemented on the 1st August 1998. This means only towbars Type Approved to 94/20 EC can be fitted to any light passenger vehicles first registered on or after 1st August 1998. Our commitment to these regulations has been ongoing for a number of years. All new towbars for light passenger vehicles are designed, tested and certified to 94/20 EC.
European Directive 94/20 EC also specifies the dimensions, locations and clearance of the 50mm towball. The centre of the towball should be between 350mm and 420mm above the ground when the vehicle is laden.
