Hi,do u know of any law requirements or certificates needed to import tyres from India to Australia
It is quite extensive and depends on if the tyres are new or old. Generally a liscence is not required however a quanrantine declaration is. However, you can search the import regulations by going here:
If you search 'tyres', 'India' and 'end user' it will return all of the relevant results and you will be able to see the regulations for which types of tyres you are planning to import. There is also an international standard for the trade of goods which codes tyres in the following way:
India has no restriction on the exportation of tyres, in some cases there are subsidies available under the FOREIGN TRADE POLICY 2009-2014.
What I want to know is if I import with the correct speed index and Stamps on the sidewall and get a freight forwarder to organise Quarantine, pay the duties and so on is there a vic roads law or Aussie road safety law saying no hang on we need to test these tyres even though it meets all the specs or you need a special importing license for these goods because it is a road safety issue or you need to go thru a heap of read tape taking months a months costing thousands and thousands of meeting some design or australian standard certificate like a dot, ece, ccc, gcc, isso, soncap certificates or can I make sure the manufacturer from that country has these certificates and I am right to go with the law in selling these off the belt but ofcourse making sure quarantines taken car of
The short answer is that yes, the tyres need to confirm to the Australian Design Rules for these types of products. More information about this here: http://www.infrastructure.gov.au/roads/motor/design/adr_online.aspx
ADR 23 for passenger car tyres gives the design rules for the specifications of car tyres on Australian cars, so if the car tyres did not conform to this standard noone would buy them because they would not be able to use them on their cars. The relevant law is the
Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989. (Cth).
