According to InterRegs, an online resource for global vehicle safety and emissions regulations, the European Parliament on Nov. 25 approved a draft regulation on the labeling of tires with respect to fuel efficiency and other essential parameters. The label will show the tire’s fuel efficiency, wet grip, and noise performance using a ranking system that ranges from “A” (best performance) to “G.” From July 1, 2012, all newly produced tires will be required to have either a sticker or a label showing this information; and from Nov. 1, 2012, all suppliers of tires must make this information available in any technical promotional material.
