This is the project webpage of the revision of the EU Ecolabel criteria for "Wooden Floor Coverings" . The current EU Ecolabel criteria study was carried carried out during 2014 to 2016 by the Joint Research Centre's Directorate B - Ggrowth and Innovation (JRC) for the European Commission's Directorate General for the Environment.

The EU Ecolabel for Wooden Floor Coverings promotes the production and consumption of products with a reduced environmental impact along the life cycle. The EU Ecolabel is awarded only to the best environmentally performing products in the market.

The EU Ecolabel criteria are developed within the frameworks of the EU Ecolabel Regulation 66/2010. The criteria are revised taking into consideration legislation, market development, technical standards and environmental aspects mainly from a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) perspective. Moreover, during the EU Ecolabel and GPP criteria revision/development process continuous consultation is carried out with a broad group of experts and stakeholders representing manufacturers, supply chain industry, procurers, member states, consumer organizations and NGOs.
