AutoSock is legally accepted as a snow chain alternative in the EU, the UK and Switzerland
From 1st December 2020 AutoSock for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles are legally accepted throughout the European Union (except Austria) and Switzerland when snow chains are mandatory.
AutoSock is the first product worldwide to be certified according to new European standard EN16662-1:2020. Following EU procedures, the standard has been implemented as national standard in all EU member states (except Austria), as well as in Norway, Switzerland, Serbia, Turkey and the UK (see list below).
At the same time, any conflicting national standards were withdrawn by November 30th, 2020. In addition, AutoSock obtained homologation in Switzerland already in October 2020.
In short, AutoSock for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles below 3,5 t gross weight can now be used whenever snow chains are mandatory in any country of the EU (except Austria), the UK and Switzerland.
