ERJ staff report (DS)
Seoul, Korea -- Korea is to introduce mandatory labels for tyres from November 2012. The date coincides with labels being introduced in Europe. A voluntary scheme was introduced yesterday (14 Nov 2011).
Lanxess AG issued a press statement saying the voluntary tyre labelling process is now in place. The label will initially provide information on rolling resistance and wet grip, and will have five grades in each category, with the relevant data displayed on the tyre. Lanxess said the regulation will be first applied to passenger car tyres and light truck tyres and then to truck and bus tyres later.
