Product Bureau

This project is based 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 was 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. If identified as necessary in the course of the study, potential additional criteria were developed.

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 were informed about the publication of draft reports, the availability of questionnaires and meetings.
