After a rigorous process of evidence gathering and consultation with interested stakeholders including 2 working group meetings, the revised criteria for these 6 detergent cleaning product groups were adopted by the European Commission on 23rd June 2017 in Brussels and published in the Official Journal on 12th July 2017.

They are now available for companies to apply against.  However, existing licence holders can continue to use the EU Ecolabel logo and licence number on detergent products that conformed to the previous criteria until the following dates:

12th January 2019: All Purpose Cleaners (Hard Surface Cleaning products)  

12th July 2018: Detergents for Dishwashers, I&I Automatic Dishwasher Detergents, Hand Dishwashing Detergents Laundry Detergents, I&I Laundry Detergents
