26 April 2011, Free Webinar on the Impact of PAHs and REACH on Tyre Industry

This webinar's primary focus will be on PAHs (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons) and the REACH restriction pertaining to PAHs content in Tyres in Europe.

As of 1 January 2010, extender oils are no longer permitted to be placed on the market for use in tyre production if they contain:
− more than 1 mg/kg (0,0001 % by weight) BaP, or,
− more than 10 mg/kg (0,001 % by weight) of the sum of all listed PAHs:

This restriction applies equally to both tyres produced within EU and the tyres imported into EU. This restriction, was originally adopted by the European Commission by means of the Directive 2005/69/EC, and is now transposed into the European Regulation 1907/2006/EC (REACH), Annex XVII, entry 50.

Latest news [11/03/2011]: 11% of tyres imported into EU are found to be non-compliant with PAHs requirements!!

This webinar will also talk about the new EU REGULATION (EC) No 1222/2009, which set out the labelling requirements of tyres with respect to fuel efficiency, wet grip and external rolling noises, aiming to increase the safety, and the economic and environmental efficiency of road transport by promoting fuel-efficient and safe tyres with low noise levels.

If you are a manufacturer or European importer or distributor in the Tyre industry, this webinar will provide you with in-depth information on how the latest regulation affects your business and will examine in detail what requirements have been placed on you.
