ECHO Bear Cat has met the required guidelines to attain certification on the manufacture of its outdoor power equipment by the National Association of Trailer Manufactures (NATM).
To receive certification, NATM members must pass a stringent audit verifying that they build quality trailers meeting Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS). These standards cover certification labels, tires & wheels, brake components, lighting, reflectors, under ride protection, and cargo payload issues. In addition, NATM certified trailers meet and exceed accepted industry manufacturing standards and practices covering safety chains, couplers, electrical components, warning labels and consumer information.
The NATM was founded in 1987 to represent manufacturers that produce light and medium-duty trailers. The association is organized to promote, both to the industry and to the public, a universal recognition of safety and quality in the trailer manufacturing industry. Since its inception, NATM has worked to improve the trailer industry through the promotion of compliance with Federal Safety Regulations and selected industry standards.
