Public hearing concerning new criteria for Laundry detergents for professional use

Nordic Ecolabelling gives you the opportunity to comment on the proposal for criteria for Nordic Swan Ecolabel Laundry detergents for professional use. Your comments are important both for the quality of the final criteria and for the impact on the market. All people, companies and institutions who are interested in the development of Nordic Swan Ecolabelled Laundry detergents for professional use logistics are welcome to provide consultation comments. We would appreciate if you kindly distribute information about this consultation to whom it may concern.

Please find the proposed criteria for download further down on this page. We look forward to your comments no later than January 31, 2023 to be taken into consideration.

This product group includes complete powder and liquid laundry detergents and multi-component systems for professional users and large-scale consumers who use washing machines with automatic dosing systems.


The requirements include, amongst others

  • Environmental properties (ecotoxicity and biodegradability) of the chemicals used in the products.
  • Health properties of the chemicals used in the products. For example, no use of fragrances, CMR-classified substances, allergenic/sensitising substances or other particularly problematic substances such as identified or potential endocrine disruptors on up-to-date lists from the EU and national authorities.
  • Efficiency tests.
  • Recyclable design of the packaging (and reuse of larger packaging) which contributes to a circular economy.
