Regulation 1222/2009/EC requires labelling on tyres. This label contains the energy efficiency class of the tyre, an indication about its wet grip and the noise that it generates. This label must be submitted in compliance with the very exact requirements.
The label is intended to inform. As soon as a tyre is offered to the consumer, the labelling must be present. It may be affixed directly on the tyre or can be displayed nearby.
All participants involved in supplying tyres have obligations in this context:
• Manufacturers must provide labels to their customers and indicate the information in the literature in accordance with the communication requirements specified by the legislature.
• Dealers must ensure that the tyres being offered are along with their label.
• Car dealers must provide information when several tyres are offered for the same vehicle.
