New EU Ecolabel Regulation 66/2010

The European Union has a new Regulation No 66/2010, which lays down rules for the establishment and application of the voluntary EU Ecolabel scheme. It repeals Regulation (EC) No 1980/2000 (subject to transitional provisions).

REGULATION (EC) No 66/2010 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 25 November 2009 on the EU Ecolabel.

This text with EEA relevance was published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) 30.1.2010 L 27/1. As a Regulation, it is directly applicable in the EU member states.
