There is also a general raise of ambition level proposed based mainly on the results of the analysis of data received from the competent bodies. One of the main objectives with the EEL revision is to enlarge the scope to cover a higher market share; so the lubricants has been classified in three main categories: -


TLL (Total Loss Lubricant) fully released to the environment during use


- -


PLL (Partial Loss Lubricant) partially released to the environment during use


ALL (Accidental Loss Lubricant) incidentally released to the environment during use


For PLL and ALL, the non-released part can be recovered for re-processing, recycling, or suitable disposal.


There is a broader spectrum of lubricants that can be awarded with the European Ecolabel like the metalworking fluid in ALL category and the temporary protection against corrosion oils in PLL category.


The final ojectives of a lubricant which fulfil the EEL criteria are: - -


Limit impact on aquatic environment Limited amount of hazardous substances


- Verified performance as effective as the average product on the market


- Sustainability management


- Avoid any spillage to the environment -


If relevant, % of certified renewable ingredients used


Hydraulic fluid product category The lubricants per applications are included in this table; moreover, the ISO classification as well as the former EU ecolabel categories are mentioned.


These EU Ecolabel criteria must be verifed by the competent body through declarations, documentation, analyses, test report or other evidence that may be provided by the applicant and/or their suppliers.


Competent bodies shall preferentially recognise attestations which are issued by bodies accredited in accordance with the relevant harmonised standard for testing and calibration laboratories (ISO 17025 or GLP).


When appropriate, competent body may require supporting documentation and may carry out independent verifications or site visits.


EEL criteria applied to hydraulic fluid To show compliance with the criteria, the applicant has to complete and address to the competent body an application form with general information on applicant, on product, composition as well as specific information on substances, fully formulated product, packaging and labelling.


The specific assessment and verification are indicated within each criteria hereafter.

The Hydraulic fluid is included in Accidental loss lubricants category so it has to fulfil the ALL criteria.


European Ecolabel criteria First, the product shall meet all applicable legal requirements of the country in which the product is intended to be placed on the market.


The following table shows the new criteria structure proposed along the revision.
