The EU Eco-label and Health


The EU Eco-label includes a number of requirements regarding health aspects of chemical substances. In fact up till half of the requirements of the technical/chemical product groups are based on health considerations - and the requirements are in general more stringent than the present legislation. It is difficult for the licensee to apply this quality in their marketing however. The precondition is that a systematic assessment has been made. The present EU regulation does not allow for such assessments to-day.
