Where to get your bike engraved in order to find it more easily.
BUT ALSO a new bike registration platform in Brussels which enables you to register and identify your bike with the help of a new sticker to reduce the risk of theft and of being stolen for resale.
It can replace the traditional engraving.  The QR code quickly enables you to know whether the bike was reported stolen.
Different information can also be reported such as the colour of the bike or certain distinctive elements.  This system is used by police zones.
