CRiS Caravan Registration and Identification Scheme

Caravan Registration and Identification Scheme (CRiS)

To Contact CRIS Please Phone 0845 300 8905

CRiS is an abbreviation for the Caravan Registration and Identification Scheme (CRiS)
CRiS is a UK nationwide register of touring caravans which was setup in 1992 by HPI
and the National Caravan Council (NCC).

This national register of touring caravans CRiS helps to prevent and detect caravan crime and acts as a security check for dealers and private caravan buyers through the issue of a Keeper Registration Document.

All caravans manufactured since 1992 by NCC members are registered on the CRiS database by a unique 17 digit Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). This VIN and the caravan description are recorded on a Touring Caravan Registration Document which is sent to the caravan's registered keeper.

Even if you own a pre-1992 caravan, or imported your own caravan into the UK, you can still register it with CRiS yourself.
Many insurance companies now require CRiS registration before they will issue a policy.

P = 1993
R = 1994

T = 1996
V = 1997
W = 1998
X = 1999
Y = 2000

2 = 2002
3 = 2003

and so on

The CRiS Check

If you are considering buying a second-user caravan then make sure you carry out a CRiS Check prior to concluding the deal.
Don’t get caught buying a caravan with a hidden history or an altered identity. A CRiS Check will not only confirm the caravans true identity, but will also reassure you of the provenance of the caravan you desire and will reveal if the caravan is subject to an HP agreement, reported stolen or been recorded as an Insurance Write-Off. In addition CRiS will be able to confirm if the ‘seller’ is currently recorded with CRiS as the current keeper.

To get a online CRiS Check Click HERE. The cost of a CRiS Check is just £14.95 so cheap to get peace of mind.

Extra security with CRiS Xtra For additional peace of mind, you can also mark your CRiS registered caravan with CRiS Xtra, an enhanced marking and identification kit containing an electronic tag and 1,000 micro-dots. You an secure your caravan using wheelclamps or alarms and trackers.
