New Turkish regulation on tyre labelling
Turkey published a Draft Regulation on The Labelling of Tyres with Respect to Fuel Efficiency and Other Parameters (2020/740/EU).
The Regulation establishes a framework for the provision of harmonised information on tyre parameters through labelling to allow end-users to make an informed choice when purchasing tyres, for the purpose of increasing safety, the protection of health, and the economic and environmental efficiency of road transport, by promoting fuel-efficient, longlasting and safe tyres with low noise levels.
The Regulation applies to C1 tyres, C2 tyres and C3 tyres that are placed on the market. Requirements for re-treaded tyres apply once a suitable testing method to measure the performance of such tyres is available in accordance with Article 13.
It does not apply to: off-road professional tyres; tyres designed to be fitted only on vehicles registered for the first time before 1 October 1990; T-type temporary-use spare tyres; tyres whose speed rating is less than 80 km/h; tyres whose nominal rim diameter does not exceed 254 mm or is 635 mm or more; tyres fitted with additional devices to improve traction properties, such as studded tyres; tyres designed only to be fitted on vehicles intended exclusively for racing; second-hand tyres, unless such tyres are imported from a third country.
The Turkish Regulation is based on the Regulation (EU) 2020/740 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 May 2020 on the labelling of tyres with respect to fuel efficiency and other parameters, amending Regulation (EU) 2017/1369 and repealing Regulation (EC) No 1222/2009.
