Mexico Proposes New Requirements for Re-treaded Tyres
Mexico is seeking input from interested parties by 12 October on a proposal (PROY-NOM-228-SCFI-2018) to establish new safety and other requirements for domestically-produced and imported re-treaded tyres, of radial or diagonal construction, for use in automobiles, vans, light lorries, buses and lorries. Excluded from this proposal are re-treaded tyres for race cars, motorcycles and quads, as well as tyres for agricultural and industrial uses and certain other tyres.
If adopted, the proposal would establish new technical specifications, test methods, and commercial information, sampling and conformity assessment requirements for subject tyres. These requirements would enter into force 365 days from the date of issuance of a final regulation in Mexico’s official journal.
