Abstract: This background document for the revision of the criteria for EU Ecolabel for WOOD, CORK AND BAMBOO BASED FLOOR COVERINGS is meant to provide the final rationale for each of the voted EU Ecolabel criteria. Each criteria rationale includes the results of stakeholder surveys, market analysis and known concerns with existing criteria, including changes in hazardous substance classification of commonly used ingredients. As policy-relevant recommendations, it points out where there is scope for strengthening the EU Ecolabel and which criteria could be removed, amended or further developed. The information contained in this document provides an overview of changes to the WOOD, CORK AND BAMBOO BASED FLOOR COVERINGS market since the adoption of the first EU Ecolabel criteria set for Wooden floor coverings, and a technical analysis to understand where the greatest environmental impacts arise in their life cycle.
