Criteria Development and Revision

EU Ecolabel criteria development/revision is a multi-step and multi-stakeholder process carried out according to the Annex I of the EU Ecolabel Regulation. If you would like to take part in an on-going development/revision, please consult the relevant JRC website and check on-going projects.

In principle, following consultation with the European Union Ecolabelling Board (EUEB), not only the European Commission, but also Member States, Competent Bodies and other stakeholders may initiate and lead the development or revision of EU Ecolabel criteria.

However, considering the priorities identified in the Strategic EU Ecolabel Work Plan 2020 - 2024, please note that no request for development of criteria for new product groups can be considered in 2021.

For your information, you can find here the list of the proposals for new product groups already received by Commission services in the past.

Qualified stakeholders should contact the EU Ecolabel Helpdesk to obtain the proposal form to lead the development/revision of a product/service's criteria process.
