for road construction

Project plan

This project will be based mainly on the requirements addressed in the Annex I of the Regulation (EC) No 66/2010 of the European Parliament and the council of 25 November 2009 on the EU Ecolabel and Communication COM(2008) 400 "Public Procurement for a better Environment". The priority in this revision process should be to first analyse which of the existing criteria and the supporting evidence are still valid and to identify the additional research that should be carried out as described below. Potential additional criteria can be developed, if identified as necessary in the course of the study.

The following five tasks are foreseen:

  1. Product definition and categorization
  2. Economic and market analysis
  3. Technical analysis
  4. Improvement potential
  5. Elaboration of draft criteria and technical background reports


Registered stakeholders will be informed about the publication of draft reports, the availability of questionnaires or upcoming meetings by email.

As the science and knowledge service of the European Commission, the Joint Research Centre's mission is to support EU policies with independent evidence throughout the whole policy cycle.
