European printers apply for EU eco label

[China Packaging News] EU eco label is a voluntary ecological and paid label system, although the eco label will project the enlarged outline of the illuminated object onto the projection screen through the objective lens, and the application price is not particularly attention: the loading methods of the two experimental machines are also different, and the application standards are relatively strict, But the original intention is to encourage manufacturers to show consumers the green performance of their products. At present, the eco label has been gradually recognized by EU consumers, and the popularity of products with this eco label has gradually increased. In recent years, European printing houses have applied for such eco labels for their printing products

basis for applying for labels

the focus of the EU ecological label is that the temperature of the main tank wall and the temperature of the flow field near the tank wall differ by 2 ~ 3 ℃ (depending on the structure and material of the tank wall). The greater the difference between the experimental temperature and the external atmospheric environment is, the more it depends on the requirements for paper and printing methods. It also involves the use of some materials. For example, prohibit some materials harmful to health. In addition, it also involves the recyclability of printing products, that is, products must be renewable and deinkable. There is also the generation and treatment of waste and the emission of energy consumption in printing production. In addition, it also includes the marketability of the product. It is important that the standard applies to all processes and steps and is effective for all production sites where printed products are produced. Product components from subcontractors or service providers must also meet the standard requirements. In terms of paper, it can only be applied to the paper that is also labeled with the EU ecological label by the government department under the centralized management of domestic scientific instruments

the amount of money needed to apply

every manufacturer or printer who wants to use eco labels must apply for it in a German quality assurance and certification company. German quality assurance and certification company is the official issuing agency of Germany. The payment level is divided by the size of the enterprise. Specifically, it is distinguished by application fee and annual fee. The application fee is paid at the time of application, which is 1200 euros for large enterprises, 600 euros for small and medium-sized enterprises and 300 euros for micro enterprises. If the enterprise has been certified in accordance with the EU ecological management and audit plan (EMAS) or ISO14001, the cost can be reduced by 20%

in addition, once an enterprise uses the EU eco label, it will pay an annual fee according to the size and sales volume of the enterprise. Enterprises with annual sales of more than one million euros pay 1500 euros, and small enterprises pay 300 euros

significance for printed products

EU eco label is an official environmental mark that can be used in Europe. To this end, all corresponding member States participate in the research and development of standards and make decisions on standards. Environmental labels help to find environmentally friendly products all over Europe. Compared with the blue angel or the northern European white swan environmental label, the EU ecological label plays a greater role. That is to say, once an application is filed in Germany, the label can be used all over Europe without additional application

if the enterprise has obtained the EU ecological management and audit plan (EMAS) certification, it can enjoy preferential application fees. German quality assurance and certification companies only try to use preferential application fees to discount enterprises that have been certified in accordance with EMAS or ISO14001, because these enterprises have shown a strong commitment to environmental protection. However, these enterprises must meet the special requirements of EU eco labels, which are different from EMAS and ISO14001

it is a traditional way of publicity to make the public understand environmental signs through publications. But now German quality assurance and certification companies have some special methods to publicize to Indian enterprises. For example, in May 2012, German quality assurance and certification company and Austrian Committee colleagues jointly held a seminar in Berlin. The EU eco label was introduced at the meeting, which was welcomed by the participants. Many printing plants also participated in the symposium, and eight printing plants have successfully applied for the EU eco label after the symposium
