Part Worn Africa is a pan-African advocacy initiative, dedicated to improving and promoting consumer protection, product safety, responsible trade and environmental management of part-worn and second-hand passenger tyres.


We work to progressively strengthen, effectively implement and maintain enhanced public policy, legislative and regulatory provisions, compulsory and technical standards and specifications governing part-worn and second-hand passenger tyres.


We are focused on key markets and jurisdictions on the African continent confronted with the risk of exposure to the proliferation in unsafe, ill-suited, illegal, illicit and dangerous part-worn and second-hand passenger tyres.


Our activities and initiatives aim to build, implement and sustain localised national agendas and action plans, as well as cross-regional cooperation and integration between national champions and regional actors.
