ABU DHABI / WAM
Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (QCC), the entity responsible for developing quality infrastructure and raising awareness on quality standards in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, conducted a vehicle tyre inspection drive in conjunction with the GCC Traffic Week 2016. The campaign aimed to ensure the compliance of tyres with relevant technical specifications and safety requirements issued by QCC in a bid to reduce accidents and fatalities associated with worn-out and substandard tyres.
As part of the campaign, QCC inspectors closely verified more than 320 tyres from 39 brands at 19 tyre retailing establishments in various parts of the emirate. They ensured that the tyres are free of scratches or other manufacturing defects and the date of manufacture does not exceed 24 months for passenger vehicles and 30 months for truck tyres. The inspection also confirmed the availability of all essential details on the tyres including the brand name, country of origin and tyre speed rating as per approved specifications.
