The Tyre Labelling Regulation has been in place since 2012 and provides consumers across Europe which indicates tyre performance in three key areas: wet grip, exterior noise and rolling resistance.
Currently active regulation has been reviewed and will be replaced by Regulation (EU) 2020/740 from 1 May 2021 onwards. By this new regulation, new requirements will be introduced, and will be applicable to PSR, CVR and TBR products.
With new regulation, the appearance of the label will change, QR code and visual information on tyre performance in snow or ice conditions will be introduced on label.
In addition, The European Product Database for Energy Labelling (EPREL) has been set up under EU Regulation 2017/1369, to provide important energy efficiency information to consumers and enhance market surveillance activities and enforcement. With the introduction of the new labelling regulation, tyre suppliers are required to upload the products’ information into the database before placing them on the market. Consumers will be able to search a product in the database to consult the energy label and product information sheet.
