EU shoe and clothing ecolabel revision delay

New and tighter award criteria for the EU flower ecolabel on footwear and textile products will come into force at least eighteen months later than planned after the European Commission this week extended the validity of current requirements for producers using the label until August 2003. Originally adopted in 1999, these were intended to expire next February. See EU ecolabel pages and extension of criteria for textiles and footwear.
