The Market Surveillance Action for Tyres 2015

The Market Surveillance Action for Tyres 2015  (MSTyr15) is the formal title of this H2020 grant funded project, which covered the regulations relating to tyres and their labelling. Launched in March 2016, MSTyr15 was focusing on a single main product - passenger car tyres. The project’s programme was running until the end of June 2018, during which time 1000s of inspections of tyres were organised as well as tests for energy efficiency (rolling resistance) and  for safety (wet grip). Fifteen market surveillance authorities from the EU and Turkey were taking part in the project under the coordination of PROSAFE.

The main objective of this proposal was 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 was 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. In this regard, MSTyr15 Action and PROSAFE developed documents (guidelines, training for inspections, templates, etc.) relevant to market surveillance officers and to economic operators involved in area of tyres.

The MSTyr15 Action is a project coordinated by PROSAFE and funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 framework. Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.








End of the MSTyr15 project: MSTyr15 Has Improved Confidence of Energy Labels and Safety of Tyres

During the past 28 months, 14 EU Market Surveillance Authorities and Turkey have collaborated and successfully delivered the Market Surveillance Action on Tyres 2015 (MSTyr15) under the co-ordination of PROSAFE. The goal of this H2020 project has been to enhance the functioning of the European Single Market by ensuring that the tyres regulatory measures are effectively enforced.

MSTyr15 is funded by the European Union and has run from March 2016 to the end of June 2018. The project involved the following countries: Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden and Turkey.
