Tyre testing and assessment services include tests for rolling resistance, energy efficiency, rolling noise and road performance (e.g. braking, handling) on various surface conditions. These tests are important for manufacturers to ensure compliance to stringent quality and safety requirements to export their tyres to the EU. Following the introduction of EU tyre labels, new regulations now enforce this additional requirement. As today’s consumers have become more knowledgeable about tyre safety and efficiency the EU tyre label makes it easy for customers to compare tyres in terms of wet grip, fuel efficiency and noise.
