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.


In the framework of the Market Surveillance Action for Tyres 2015  (MSTyr15), PROSAFE is organising a large amount of meetings and workshops . To get updated with the PROSAFE agenda of events, please click on the calendar below:



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.








The MSTyr15 project will be presented at the EU Sustainable Energy Week on 5 June 2018 in Brussels

The European Union Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is a series of events organised annually by the European Commission in Brussels, consisting out of policy conferences, networking opportunities and an awards competition. The high point of EUSEW is the annual Policy Conference featuring leading figures and a diverse programme of sessions and side-events aimed at discussing and shaping Europe's energy future. This year the event will take place from 4 to 8 June 2018 and PROSAFE will be participating as the lead organiser of a policy conference on 5 June at the Residence Palace, Rue de la Loi 155, B-1040 Brussels.
