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.

Inspections of tyres and analysis of documentation

The fourteen market surveillance authorities taking part in MSTyr15 are progressing well into inspecting and checking for non-compliant tyres on the market. Together, the participants have reached almost half of the intended total of 15.000 Class C1 passenger car tyres to be inspected and are futher continuing during the following months. 

In the same time, most of the countries have already started checking the technical documentation of the tyres. The inspectors need to make sure that these documents, which the suppliers and distributors of tyres need to make available  to enforcement authorities upon their request, are in accordance with the Regulation.
