Tyres for cars, lorries, buses, motorcycles, tractors, off-road vehicles, motorised machinery, trailers and towed machinery are all regarded as ‘tyres’ in this Ordinance.
Everyone placing such products on the Swedish market must accept end-of-life tyres and ensure that the tyres are reused, recycled, used for energy recovery or disposed of in another environmentally acceptable way to fulfil the rules and regulations. Tyres on cars are not included in the producer responsibility for tyres, but instead by the producer responsibility for cars.
Producers include those who are placing tyres on the Swedish market for the first time:
  • Those commercially manufacturing, importing or selling tyres
  • Those commercially manufacturing, importing or selling cars, lorries, buses, motorcycles, tractors, off-road vehicles, motorised machinery, trailers and towed machinery that are fitted with newly produced tyres.
A producer must provide information about returning tyres that have reached the end of life and make it easy for those with such tyres to return them.Related pages
