ETRTO and JRC attend workshop on Euro 7 test methodology

This week, representatives of the European Tyre and Rim Technical Organisation (ETRTO) and the Joint Research Center (JRC) participated in a 2-day workshop on tyre abrasion at the DEKRA test center in the south of France.

They had the chance to see the methodology approved by the UNECE Working Party on Noise and Tyres (GRBP) in action and to better understand the driving conditions specified in the Euro 7 regulation.

More testing will be conducted to collect abrasion data from diverse tyre sizes, patterns, and brands in the upcoming months. This data will then be used to determine tyre abrasion limits for passenger car tyres (C1 tyres) to be incorporated in UN Regulation No. 117 by September 2025.

The European tyre industry has significantly invested in this market assessment and the proposal will become the reference methodology of the Euro 7 regulation of the European Union.
