NATM Decal

Look for the mark of safety while buying a trailer.

Buying A Trailer?

As a consumer, it is nearly impossible to fully understand the hundreds of safety-related regulations that trailer manufacturers are required by law to comply with, including lights, trailer capacities, brakes, and much more.

NATM has made it easier on consumers by creating the NATM Decal. Trailers featuring this decal are built by manufacturers who have verified compliance through the NATM Compliance Verification Program.

NATM has compiled the applicable federal regulations and industry best practices and every two years, NATM Compliance Consultants visit member facilities to ensure they have the manufacturing processes in place to build trailers in accordance with these standards.

Participation in this program is MANDATORY for all NATM trailer manufacturing members and only NATM members who have successfully completed the Compliance Verification Program are allowed to place NATM Decals on their trailers.
