Basic Award Criteria

Overview of all product groups and criteria

The following table provides an overview of all groups of products and services that can be labelled with the EU Ecolabel.

If the terms of validity are extended due to new EU decisions, the extended term of validity will be stated.

When opening, the respective criteria and application documents are available for download. If the criteria are met, an application can be submitted to RAL gGmbH online via the WEB-PORTAL.

Other product groups are being prepared by the EU. You can find out more information about this from the Joint Research Centre (JRC). Here you will also find background reports (Technical Reports).

Web-Portal
