The second Management Team Meeting of the Market Surveillance Action for Tyres 2015 will take place between 20 and 21 September 2016, in Brussels. There will be two days of meetings which will include WP3 (Training) and WP4 (Data collection and database) Joint Meetings and WP5 (Inspection and testing tyres) Kick-off Meeting.
MSTyr15, funded by the European Commission under Horizon 2020, has been officialy launched on 6 April 2016 during a conference held in Brussels. The meeting was opened by the Executive Director of PROSAFE.
Though predominantly an energy project, MSTyr15 can be seen as the first “cross-over” project coordinated by PROSAFE. It consists of both testing for energy efficiency (rolling resistance) and testing for safety (wet grip).
Brussels, 07.04.2016 - 13 EU market surveillance authorities and Turkey have united efforts under the coordination of PROSAFE to enhance the functioning of the European Single Market by ensuring that the tyres regulatory measures are effectively enforced.
The Market Surveillance Action for Tyres 2015, officially launched on 6 April 2016, will deliver energy savings of at least 105 GWh/year through removing incorrectly labelled passenger car tyres from the market.
