Major changes

Nordic Ecolabelling would like to have comments on the complete criteria set, but would like to highlight the following points:

  • O4 Identification of hazardous materials – especially the identification of chloroparaffins in the windows is of interest.
  • O5 Handling of identified hazardous materials 
  • O8 Recycling of float glass – is the documentation required clear and sufficient? 
  • O10 Ecolabelled windows – specifically the share of ecolabelled windows suggested.

What happens next?

When the public hearing period is complete, the answers will be compiled and evaluated. For this reason, a new revised proposal for criteria will be submitted to the Swedish Ecolabelling Board and the other national committees. On this basis, the Nordic Ecolabelling Board will then decide on new criteria.

Part of the decision document is the summary of all public hearing responses together with answers from Nordic Ecolabelling. The summary will be public and available on the Ecolabelling Sweden’s web page in connection with the publication of the new criteria.

We look forward to receiving your comments no later than September 4, 2024.
