Brussels--The European Parliament environment committee voted last Wednesday (20 April) to extend the deadline on PAH oil limits in tyres to 2010, in line with requests from the tyre manufacturers. The text is scheduled to come before the full parliament for a vote on Wed., 25 May.
A story in Environment News said, "MEPs said manufacturers should also be able to sell all remaining stocks of non-compliant tyres once the ban enters force. They backed a two-year derogation for racing tyres and added a similar grace period for "vintage and specialist" tyres. New rubber used to retread old tyres will also have to comply with the limits."
