As it is known, in the process of joining the European Union, our country has to harmonize its legal arrangements with the legislation of the European Union. Our country has to make new regulations by taking into consideration the legal regulations and practices of the European Union in many areas. These areas include the Eco-Label System. This system was implemented in 1992 in European Union countries, but it was included in the legislative harmonization studies with the Council's directive 1980 / 2000 (EC). However, the necessary efforts for integration have not been started immediately. About this environmental tags Ministry of Environment and Urbanization has been assigned to make the arrangements. The Ministry also established the Environmental Management System and Environmental Label Branch Directorate under the General Directorate of Environmental Impact Assessment, Permit and Inspection.
As these studies have not been completed yet, the flower logo which is the European Union Eco-Label is not given in our country yet. In the face of these developments, our company has completely developed Ekomark © Standard by considering the conditions and needs of our country and Ekomark © Tag use. Our organization has been authorized by the foreign accreditation institution.
