The European Commission has published amendments on previously approved EU Ecolabel Decisions regarding detergents and cleaning products.
These decisions have included the classification of readily-degradable surfactants as chronic category 3 (H412) or chronic category 2 (H411).
The changes have made it more stringent to earn the label “best 10 – 20%” environmental performance on the market.
Affected products include:
- laundry detergents
- hand dishwashing detergents
- all-purpose cleaners
- sanitary cleaners
- industrial and institutional automatic dishwasher detergents
- industrial and institutional laundry detergents
