18. The expert from ETRMA presented GRPE-74-10 to highlight that emissions from tyres should be excluded from the test procedure in the draft new GTR on WLTP EVAP. He explained that tyres should be removed at the stage of vehicle preparation, since they are not part of the fuel storing system and they may add some uncertainty to the test.
