Argentina Extends Deadline to Comply with Conformity Certification Requirements for Bicycle Tyres

As previously reported, Argentina adopted in May 2018 new technical requirements for bicycle tyres, including quality and marking/labelling requirements. Specifically, pneumatic covers of bike tyres must comply with the requirements of standard IRAM 113.330, while pneumatic chambers of bike tyres must adhere to the provisions of standard IRAM 40.025. Pneumatic covers and chambers must be marked and labelled as provided in these standards, including by disclosing the applicable date of manufacture. In addition, the product or its primary packaging must include information on the name and/or brand of the producer and/or importer, country of origin, and safety seal in accordance with the certification system selected.

The deadline to comply with these requirements was recently extended through Resolution 129/2019. Specifically, domestic producers and importers of subject merchandise must demonstrate compliance with these requirements by obtaining a product certification from an authorised certification body effective from 1 June 2019, compared to the previously announced 1 February 2019 deadline.
