  • Published:
  • SBD

From Australia to the USA - gain a comprehensive view of legislation, insurance requirements and fitment trends of passenger car immobilisers.

Immobilisers have proved to be an invaluable tool in the fight against vehicle theft. However it is not always clear what type of immobiliser is required to meet the different legislation and insurance requirements across the world. SBD's latest report offers a clear explanation of the requirements in force, and what level of performance is the most appropriate in each market. The differences between types of immobilisers, particularly with regards to minimum legal requirements, and the performance required to prevent the latest high tech theft methods are analysed.

Vehicle theft, immobiliser requirements, and fitment rates across 24 countries including major global markets like Australia, Brazil, China, Russia, Sweden, UK and the USA are analysed. This report also discusses the link between immobilisation and theft reduction in each country.

This report will help you:

  • Form a regional fitment strategy by understanding country specific legal requirements
  • Maximise insurance benefits awarded to higher performance immobilisers
  • Analyse the differences in types of immobilisers and identify the best fit for different countries
  • Understand the immobiliser fitment trends and their effects on vehicle theft

This report answers the following key questions:

  • Which countries mandate immobilisers and what are the fitment rates?
  • What are the theft rates before and after immobilisation?
  • What performance of immobiliser is required to meet legal requirements, insurance requirements, and to stop thieves?
  • What additional benefits exist for higher performance immobilisers?
