Regulations

Nordic Swan ecolabelling of goods and services is subject to official regulations adopted by the Nordic Ecolabelling Board. Learn more about the rules before you apply.

The Nordic Council of Ministers has determined the overall rules for the Nordic Ecolabelling of Products and the rules of procedure for the Nordic Ecolabelling Board.

The Nordic Ecolabelling Board decides the criteria for each product group and sets the rules for the companies that apply for or have a licence for the Nordic Swan Ecolabel.

In addition to the Nordic regulation, national ecolabelling regulations and statutory orders apply in each of the five Nordic countries. You will find national regulations on the website of your local ecolabelling organisation.
