Legislative
Eu Regulation
Passed in 2009
The aim of this Regulation is to increase the safety, and the economic and environmental efficiency of road transport by promoting fuel-efficient and safe tyres with low noise levels. It establishes a framework for the provision of harmonised information on tyre parameters through labelling, allowing end-users to make an informed choice when purchasing tyres. 

The Regulation lists a number of obligations for tyre suppliers regarding different fuel efficiency classes. Article 7 specifies that harmonised testing methods referred to in Annex I must apply. Article 10 states that Member States shall not provide incentives with regard to tyres below Class C. However, Taxation and fiscal measures do not constitute incentives for the purpose of this Regulation.
