After 2 ad-hoc working group meetings in 2015 involving a wide range of interested stakeholders - including representatives from industry, environmental NGO's and governmental bodies, work on completing a draft set of criteria is nearly complete. 

The meeting minutes, draft technical reports and draft criteria can be downloaded from the web address below

After going through a process of internal consultation within the European Commission, the draft criteria will be presented to the meeting of the EU Ecolabelling Board (EUEB) in November 2016, where it will be voted on.

The EUEB meets three times a year and as well as discussing and voting on new or revised criteria, also develops the overall strategy for the EU Ecolabel scheme. 

The EUEB comprises the representatives of the governments of the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway and of the following organisations:
European Environmental Bureau (EEB)
Bureau Européen des Consommateurs (BEUC)
European Confederation of Associations of Small- and Medium-Sized Enterprises (CEA-PME)
Business Europe
EUROCOOP
European Association of Craft, Small- & Medium-Sized Enterprises (UEAPME)
EUROCOMMERCE
