The Tyre Industry Federation (TIF) has announced that it understands the Department for Transport (DfT) intends to retain alignment with future evolutions of the EU tyre labelling regulations in the UK, at least as far as the label itself is concerned. The rationale is to ensure a smoothly working market for tyres, the TIF adds.
The Tyre Industry Federation (TIF), which represents the UK tyre industry on issues of common concern, has confirmed its support and participation in the Department for Transport (DfT) and Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) ‘Call for evidence on brake, tyre and road surface wear’.
Stuart Jackson, Apollo Vredestein UK managing director and Tyresafe chairman, was elected as chairman of the Tyre Industry Federation (TIF) during the umbrella association’s booard meeting during that last month. While it is early days in the incumbent’s tenure, there are early indications that there will be developments within the wider TIF strategy and that members will be looking at areas of common ground between the various member associations. Speaking to Tyres & Accessories on the sidelines of an Apollo Vredestein event in Manchester, Jackson described the news as “an honour”.
