The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) has become an official member of the MSTyr15 Consortium. The Irish authority expressed its intention to participate in the Market Surveillance Action for Tyres 2015 and the application has been approved by the European Commission.
Together with SEAI, other fourteen market surveillance authorities are part of the Action: Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden and Turkey.
SEAI was planning to undertake tyre labelling inspections on its own, but decided instead to join the MSTyr15 Action as this would present a great oportunity to utilise the good practice already developed and to be part of a pan-EU project.
Furthermore, the duration of the Market Surveillance Action for Tyres 2015 has been extended from 24 to 28 months.
