Article in BS: Govt to start certification system for imported tyres
News article in today's (23/8) Business Standard:
Govt to start certification system for imported tyres
Does this mean that Indian consumers will be able to place greater reliance on imported tyres? Given the huge tyre recalls (Chinese imports) currently underway in the US, should we be worried here in India with the current complete lack of quality assurance and warranty?

This is not as much to ensure quality but more to do with the protectionist attitude of our govt. to domestic industry. This is mainly being done on behalf of th major manufacturers with plants in India so that they can keep their Cartel going & sell tyres to us at high costs.
Besides, the main imports from China nowadays are Truck tyres since that is a high-volume & high-margin segment. Since companies like MRF, JK, CEAT etc. are losing ground to Chinese tyres this new protectionist rule is being pondered.
Like theMag said, I don't know too whether this is to ensure quality or the cartel.

Untill now tyres are not the part of safety article in a car as per SIAM.
But SIAM is seriously studying this, once tyres are put in safety article list, no tyre will flow in to INDIA witout proper certification.
It is like if you want to export your tyres to Europe you need to have E certification and for USA, DOT approval..
