The MSTyr15 campaign will last until the start of 2018 and involves market surveillance authorities of 13 European Union member states and Turkey. It will involve s liaison with all EU 28 market surveillance authorities through the TyresADCO.
The project is being led by Prosafe, a group that has been assigned by the European Commission to coordinate and manage the joint market surveillance activities.
