As a consequence of the already launched Anti-Dumping Investigation the EC has now started the investigation about possible unfair subsidies granted to producers or exporters of new or retreaded TBR tyres in the People’s Republic of China. This kind of subsidies seem to be obvious taking into account that many of prices of these imports can barely cover the pure material costs.
The EC launched an Ex-post evaluation in regard to the introduction of the Tyre Labelling Scheme in line with the 1222/2009 EU. Many associations and organisations gave their feedback about the acceptance, advantages but also critics and proposed improvements of/to the actual labelling legislation. Also BIPAVER gave its feedback to the scheme, especially in regard to the role of retreaded tyres.
BIPAVER, the European retreading association, has now announced the launch of the “Global Retreading Conference” (GRC) on 29th May 2018 (from 09:30 am to 05:30 pm at the “Rheinsaal” in the Congress Center North) in cooperation with “The Tire Cologne”.
