Marking of tires is stipulated by Regulation of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 792-r of April 28, 2018, “On Approval of the List of Certain Groups of Goods Subject to Mandatory Marking by Means of Identification.”

The labeling system was created to combat counterfeiting and reduce the volume of the gray market, as counterfeit products cause significant damage to the economy, law-abiding sellers and manufacturers. In addition, in some cases, counterfeit goods can be dangerous to health and life.
