Federal and Hero brands comply with Reach, manufacturer says
Taiwan’s Federal has joined the likes of Giti and Westlake in responding to the ETRMA’s recent reports of “strong industry concern” existing as to whether all tyres imported into the European Union are being tested for compliance. The corporation states that it has “taken immediate action to re-test both their Federal and Hero brand tyres in the independent testing centre TARRC (Tun Abdul Razak Research Centre), certified by ETRMA”.
Henry Lin, director of Global Sales, Federal Corporation, informed the company’s European partners: “the most updated test reports released by TARRC have justified that both our Federal and Hero brand tyres produced in our China factory are fully comply with Reach regulations on PAH oils according to ISO 21461 method accredited by UKAS.”
Federal also restated its “dedicated commitment to continue supplying this important region with excellent products that meet EU regulations.” The company says it has a history of “over 30 years” of “solid presence on the European market”.
