Mayo, Ireland − Keith Revins’ tire outlet in Mayo and Roscommon is one of the first in the country to be granted a licence by the Irish Tyre Industry Association (ITIA) under its new self-regulation scheme to bring improved standards, service and safety into the tire trade, reported The Mayo Advertiser.
To be granted a licence Keith Revins’ business has had to comply with strict licensing criteria which includes the independent accreditation of staff skills. Licensees must also declare that they do not sell second hand, part worn, tires.
Motorists now have a clear visible sign to help them choose a tire retailer who places safety at the forefront of service. Using a licensed outlet will mean they have the peace of mind to know they are choosing a tire expert who has experienced, skilled, staff and is committed to working to industry best practise.
The issue of licenses by the ITIA is a groundbreaking development for the tire industry. It is the first time that standards have been introduced to the industry and is in direct response to a mandate from ITIA members to improve safety in the industry.
Kevin Farrell, ITIA president, said: “Our members have been quick to support the licensing scheme. As reputable traders they see the value in being able to let motorists know how serious they are about providing an expert service with safety as their focus.”
All ITIA members offer free tire safety checks to help motorists get the most out of their tires.
