Brazil’s tire labeling program will be similar to Europe’s

Filed under: Tires — Notch @ 6:07 am

European Rubber Journal (subscription required) reports that Brazil has concluded the comment period for its proposed rules for tire labels. The original discussion document, which was published in mid-June, included information on the proposed label, which was very similar the EU label. Brazil’s Institute Of Metrology, Quality And Technology, InMetro is now studying the responses and is expected to publish a revised document in the next few months.

The discussion document included a proposed label (see below, courtesy of ERJ), which is almost indistinguishable from the EU version. Like its EU counterpart, the Brazilian version tracks rolling resistance, wet grip and noise. The proposal suggests an introductory period of around 4 years. Once the final rule is published, tire producers and importers would have 48 months to meet the guidelines.
