What is the EU Ecolabel?
The EU Ecolabel is the official European Union voluntary label for environmental excellence. Established in 1992 and recognised across Europe and worldwide, the EU Ecolabel certifies products with a guaranteed, independently-verified low environmental impact. To be awarded the EU Ecolabel, goods and services should meet high environmental standards throughout their entire life cycle: from raw material extraction through production and distribution to disposal. The label also encourages companies to develop innovative products that are durable, easy to repair and recyclable.
Through the EU Ecolabel, industry can offer true and reliable eco-friendly alternatives to conventional products, empowering consumers to make informed choices and play an active role in the green transition.
Choosing and promoting EU Ecolabel products makes a real contribution to the biggest environmental challenges of our time identified in the European Green Deal, such as reaching climate neutrality by 2050, shifting to a circular economy and reaching the zero pollution ambition for a toxic-free environment.
In order for a product to be declared in accordance with certain conditions, it is necessary to check the suitability of this product in accordance with certain criteria. These tests should be carried out in laboratories that have sufficient competence and adequacy. The competence of the laboratory and the proof of its sufficiency lies in the accreditation system. If this is not done, the parties may suffer from this transaction.
Our organization ECO Label Institute is based on the following laboratory accreditation standards:
• ISO / IEC 17025 General requirements for the adequacy of testing and calibration laboratories
• ISO 15189 Medical laboratories – Quality and qualification requirements
The laboratory that provides testing services in this accreditation process receives a guarantee of international recognition and acceptability.
Our company ECO Label provides accreditation services to certification and conformity assessment agencies and laboratories that will operate in various sectors with a strong technological infrastructure, as well as trained and experienced specialists.
One of the important goals of our organization ECO Label is to protect the environment. It is planned to become a member of local and foreign organizations working in this direction, and to take part in events as soon as possible.
