New EU tyre labelling regulation
BTMA is leading industry dialogue with the Department for Transport in pursuit of the introduction of the new EU tyre labelling regulation in Great Britain on 1st May 2021. Delayed implementation in GB would lead to unnecessary industry disruption and consumer confusion. The industry’s proposal builds on existing industry data and infrastructure. It would achieve a smooth transition from Day 1, delivering the regulation’s stated goals at least cost and with least burden for industry and government alike.
