The EU Ecolabel is a voluntary certification to promote environmentally friendly products and services on the European market. It covers a wide range of product and service groups from cleaning products to tourist accommodation. Some of the criteria include ingredient hazard, biodegradation, packaging, sustainable sourcing and efficacy. Products and services that are awarded the Ecolabel designation show the distinctive flower logo, providing a standard that consumers can trust.

wca can prepare Ecolabel product applications and liaise with Competent Authorities during the assessment process to solve any queries. We can compile dossiers of supporting information based on publicly available information to meet criteria requirements without the need for further testing. We can also provide study commissioning (with external labs) and monitoring if required.

Our areas of expertise cover:

  • Personal care products (rinse-off cosmetic products)
  • Cleaning products (dishwashing and laundry detergents, surface cleaning products)
  • Lubricants

We are also able to provide advice on the chemical and biological criteria for other product groups, such as paints and varnishes and growing media, soil improvers and mulch. Please contact us for further information on our Ecolabel capabilities.
