ERJ staff report (DS)
Brussels - ETRMA board of directors have agreed that market surveillance should be the number one priority of the work of the organisation. Furthermore, the Board emphasises that environmental as well as social and economic sustainability should remain the long term objective of the European tyre and rubber industry.
ETRMA's board of directors convenes twice a year and sets medium to long term priorities for the activities of the Association.
Patrick Lepercq (Michelin), President of ETRMA, said â€œThe labelling regulation which comes into force on 1st November is a game changer for our industry as it sets a new benchmark for competition. Essential for the success of the new regulation is effective market surveillance. A lack of strong enforcement would damage the label's credibility in the eye of the consumer, as well as the competitiveness of manufacturers who play by the rules and have invested into compliance. It is therefore essential that National market surveillance Authorities put in place their respective control activities, with the outstanding support of the European Commission which has started to organize regular meetings of the Market Surveillance Authorities for benchmark purposesâ€.
