ATMA Calls For Extension In The Timeline For New Tyre Norms Related To Fuel Mileage, Wet Grip And Silence Levels

The proposed norms of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) have been the talking point in the tyre industry of late. After some mixed reactions by the leading tyre manufacturers, now the Automotive Tyre Manufacturers Association (ATMA) has also come up with its set of observations and constraints.

The representative body of the automotive tyre industry in India, ATMA stated that the timelines given for the implementation of new tyre norms will require a revision. As to test a large number of tyre patterns (SKUs) for rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling sound emission call for a realistic time limit for its industry members.

The proposal by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) says that the new norms should be integrated for all new tyre designs manufactured from October 1, 2021, onwards and for all the existing tyre patterns by October 1, 2022, which include passenger cars, light commercial vehicles (LCVs), and heavy commercial vehicles (HCVs) in the country.

As per ATMA, the successful accomplishment of the proposed notification highly depends upon the readiness of sufficient test infrastructure. As the tyre tests for wet grip and noise levels are done only on test tracks.

The tyre manufacturers’ body emphasized on the need for adequate testing infrastructure in the country. ATMA in collaboration with its technical wing Indian Tyre Technical Advisory Committee (ITTAC) will soon revert with a detailed response on the draft notification.

Rajiv Budhraja, ATMA Director General, welcomed the proposal norms concerning new standards for rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling sound emission. He said, “Tyre industry's growth is underpinned by a sharp focus on technical and environmental parameters.

The new draft norms will further align Indian standards with the best in operation internationally. As a key segment of Indian manufacturing that has proved its credentials globally, the Indian tyre industry will be keen to adopt these norms at the earliest.

The tyre industry has collaborated actively with the government in formulation of AIS 142, which defines norms for tyres and under which the new norms will be incorporated,” he added.
