TIF publishes labelling advice
With just two months to go before Tyre Labelling starts appear in the market, TIF is offering its advice. The EU tyre labelling Regulation comes into effect for tyre manufacturers from 1 July. From that date retailers can expect to see certain deliveries of tyres arriving with the new “consumer advice” label affixed. The full impact for retail premises is 1 November, when retailers have to pass on this information to consumers. That leaves just 6 months to prepare for the biggest change in tyre retailing for years.
Recognising the need for information and industry guidance, the Tyre Industry Federation has worked closely with the Department for Transport to provide an authoritative guide to the topic. The result is a concise document available free to download at tyreindustryfederation.co.uk.
TIF Chairman, David Seward, said “Once again, TIF is meeting a need for clear information that will contribute to further increasing professionalism within our Industry.”
