A key focus during the first quarter of 2023 is registration. Firstly, registration of participants, particularly those who sell tyres. And secondly, registration of interest for those wishing to be involved in the Technical Advisory Groups.
As the Ministry of Transport and Waka Kotahi begin working together to review the tyre import standards, their representatives are keen to engage with the tyre importers – this is an example of work that will be undertaken through the Technical Advisory Group – Tyre Importers. Tyrewise will be sending information to all tyre importers on its database about this review in the coming weeks.
So, whether you’re a seller of tyres or wish to provide your expertise and industry knowledge to a Technical Advisory Group to continue the good work done by the Tyrewise Working Group, please make sure Tyrewise has your details..
The Technical Advisory Groups are key to the effectiveness of Tyrewise. They provide specialist advice on meeting Key Performance Indicators that will measure the success of its mahi (work). Representing each part of the supply chain, the Groups act as a sounding board for the Trustees and Project Managers.
Six Groups are currently proposed:
- Product and End markets (Processors and Manufacturers)
- Grants (Market stimulation, R&D)
- Tyre Importers (loose and on vehicles)
- Tyre Transporters (integrated and non-integrated providers)
- Advanced Stewardship Fee Review Committee
- Tyres outside of scope (incl. bicycles and non-motorised equipment)
