Download in .pdf format Download in .docx format

ETRTO detected an issue in document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2022/7 with the insertion of paragraph 3.5.1. that is the consequence of the alignment between UN Regulation No. 54 and UN Regulation No. 109. This new requirement regarding the marking position in the sidewall for retreaded tyres is creating a burden for the retread industry that will potentially need to adapt all their moulds accordingly, without considering transitional provisions.
