The revised ADR38/04 came into force on July 1st, 2014 (January 1st, 2015 for existing make/model ADR approvals).

 

This requires all new trailers to have either load proportioned braking ('LSV' load sensing valves) or anti-lock ('ABS' or 'TEBS').
This will be followed by ADR38/05 in the not too distant future, which will mandate stability control ('TEBS') on all new trailers.

The following video outlines our "GOOD, BETTER, BEST" solutions for ADR38/04 compliance.
