Market Surveillance Project Tyres 2015 (MSTyr15) is the formal title of this H2020 grant funded project, which covers the regulations relating to tyres and their labelling.
Launched in April 2016, MSTyr15 is focusing on a single main product - passenger car tyres. The project’s programme will run until early 2018, during which time 1000s of inspections of tyres will be organized as well as tests for energy efficiency (rolling resistance) and for safety (wet grip).
14 market surveillance authorities from the EU and Turkey are taking part in the project under the coordination of PROSAFE.
The main objective of this proposal is to help deliver the intended economic and environment benefits of the labelling of class C1 (passenger car) tyres with respect to improving fuel efficiency and other essential parameters by increasing the rates of compliance with the regulatory requirements.
This will be achieved by improving the effectiveness of the market surveillance authorities through skill-building training and the provision and adoption of good practice guidelines.
More effective market surveillance leads to higher levels of compliance that ensure the delivery of higher levels of fuel efficiency. The improvements in market surveillance intended to be delivered by this project are expected to deliver annual energy savings equivalent to 105 GWh.
