Unfortunately, T-ISS has informed that counterfeit reflective tapes are offered in different parts of the world. This time, the counterfeit SOLAS reflective tapes have been printed with the T-ISS logo and are completed with an expired MED certification number (which was originally for a SART transponder). The quality of this product does NOT meet the required standards according to IMO/Solas/MED and will fade/discolour (turn yellow) within 2 months. This counterfeit product does NOT have the reflective properties required, therefore your life saving equipment will NOT be visible as per Solas requirements.
Below you can see the counterfeit T-ISS SOLASflex Reflective tape and the T-ISS original product next to eachother.
You can always contact us for more information or to confirm that you are using a certified product.
Please make sure you are always using a type 2 approved reflective tape on your life saving equipment which is exposed to the environment. Your life may depend on it!
If you need more information about the T-ISS SOLAS tape product range or would like to place an order, please contact us.
