ISO 14024 Environmental Labels and Declarations — Type I Environmental Labelling — Principles and Procedures
ISO 14024 establishes the principles and procedures for developing Type I environmental labelling programmes, including the selection of product categories, product environmental criteria and product function characteristics, and for assessing and demonstrating compliance.
There are several approaches to environmental labelling. This standard relates to Type I environmental labelling programmes, which award their environmental label to products that meet a set of predetermined requirements. The label identifies products that are determined to be environmentally preferable within a particular product category.
Type I environmental labelling programmes are voluntary, can be operated by public or private agencies and can be national, regional or international in nature.
