Abstract: Harmonisation of indoor products labelling schemes in the EU is an important aspect of the European Commission’s policy making process in the field of indoor air quality and associated health effects. This report describes the outcome of recent activities and a roadmap setting out the steps being taken by a preparatory working group led by the European Commission for establishing an EU wide harmonisation framework for labelling schemes which consists of core and transitional criteria. The harmonization framework proposed in ECA report no. 27 will help the convergence of existing mandatory and voluntary labelling schemes in EU. This report is the final product of an initiative, coordinated by the JRC-IHCP at Ispra and integrated into the EU strategy on indoor air quality led by the EC Directorate General for Health and Consumer Affairs. This initiative started in 2010 with an international workshop “Harmonized framework on indoor material labeling schemes: challenge with a global perspective”. Member States, the industry and the consumers are concerned by it. Labeling of products will help building designers and consumers making informed choices about the products (existing or new) in the market which are used in indoor environments and also removing existing barriers in trade of consumer products used indoors.
