Eco-labelling machinery rolls on

Environmental criteria for only six product groups are likely to be ready for the EC eco-labelling scheme's launch in June. Criteria for another 20 or so are in the pipeline, but for some products - notably detergents and copying and tissue paper -industry interests still have to be appeased.

The initial plan was that criteria for 10-12 product groups should be ready for the launch of the eco-labelling scheme so as to give it high consumer visibility (ENDS Report 216, p 24-25 ). But now it seems likely that criteria for just six product groups will be ready by June.
