Brussels - ETRMA is studying whether tyre labelling can be extended to retreaded tyres.
The EU Tyre Labelling Regulation, which will enter into force next
November, requires the Commission to perform an assessment, also on whether it will be
feasible to extend the labelling to retreaded tyres. The current ETRMA project aims to support that effort by the EU.
Retreaded tyres account for approximately 40 percent of the total European replacement truck
tyre market. ETRMA members together with hundreds of franchised or licensed retreaders
collectively represent approximately 80% of the volume of retreaded tyres sold on the
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 represent
an important element for the European environmental and industrial future.
