The Regulation (EU) 2020/740 of the European Parliament that will come into force on 1st May 2021 for all European Union countries, sets new rules on tyres labelling with respect to fuel efficiency and other parameters and it is applicable to C1, C2 and C3 tyres that are placed on the market.
This new Regulation establishes a framework for the provision of harmonised information on tyre parameters through labelling, to allow end-users to make an informed choice when purchasing tyres.
This is for the purpose of increasing safety, the protection of health, and the economic and environmental efficiency of road transport, by promoting fuel‐efficient, long‐lasting safe tyres with low noise levels. The new Regulation will allow more tyres with high performance levels, in terms of safety and sustainability1, to be present in the market.
In order to facilitate the monitoring of compliance, to provide a useful tool for end-users and to allow alternative ways for distributors to receive product information, the Regulation states that any new and further information must be included in the product database (European Product Database for Energy Labelling – EPREL), established under Regulation (EU) 2017/1369.
Label values are reported
The Label, illustrated above, will be placed on each tyres, to ensure that the end-user can easily see the information and make an informed decision when purchasing the product.
