Will the EU tire labeling regulation include retreaded tires?

The European Tire and Rubber Manufacturing Association (ETRMA) is looking into whether the EU tire labeling regulation can be extended to cover retreaded tires. The legislation, which will enter into force November 2012, requires the commission to perform an assessment, also on whether it will be feasible to extend the labeling to retreaded tires.

In cooperation with ETRTO retreading specialists, ETRMA has begun an assessment in order to be able to effectively contribute to future policy actions and their feasibility assessment. The goal for ETRMA is also to represent the interest of the hundreds of retreading companies, many of which are SMEs, and whose economic viability represents an important element for the European environmental and industrial future.

ETRMA, secretary general Fazilet Cinaralp said, “ETRMA’s active contribution in the re-launched CARS 21, its compliance with REACH requirements and the intense ongoing research and development for more environmentally sound products are all examples of the determination of our industry to maintain the position of leaders in the European and global tire markets”.
