GRRF/2017/20 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 109 (France)
Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 109
In order to have a Regulation on the retreaded tyres with definitions and provisions structured in the same way of those previously introduced in amendments of “new tyres” Regulations, this amendment:
indicates that for the purpose of this Regulation “tyres” means “pneumatic tyres” (all text amended accordingly)
introduces definitions of:
“retreader” copy based on that “manufacturer” in the tyres regulations
Brand name", “Trademark”, “Trade description” and “Commercial name” as defined in the tyre regulations
Material manufacturer / material supplier
takes into account the rounding rules (already approved in the other tyre regulations) for the calculation of width and diameter of the tyres
aligns the title and the provisions of the para. 12 related to the names and addresses of Technical Services, Approved Laboratories and administrative Department with their equivalent in the tyres regulations
add some information in the certificate to the attention of the Type Approval Authorities for making easier the relationship between this one and the products
In para. 18.104.22.168., the possibility for the material manufacturer or supplier of the pre-cured tread pattern to provide directly to the Type Approval Authority (or Technical Service) all the documents needed to demonstrate the retreaded tyres produced with this pre-cured tread pattern fulfil the requirements of paragraph 7.2. in order to be classified as a “snow tyre for use in severe snow conditions”
In para. 22.214.171.124. a new table of tolerances with the objective to properly take into account the requirements for size designations in Annex 5 in addition to what already expressed. The maximum overall width has been taken from the international Tyre Standard ETRTO and Tire and Rim Association.
