Dishwasher detergents for professional use

Complete dishwasher detergents, multi-component systems, rinse aids and soaking agents for professional use in institutional and large-scale kitchens can be Nordic Swan Ecolabelled. The criteria also cover products used for instrument cleaning in healthcare (products for washer disinfectors and disinfection machines).

The requirements include:

  • 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 perfumes, CMR-classified substances or other particularly problematic substances such as endocrine disruptors and suspected endocrine disruptors on 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.
