Green Label Scheme
Green Label Scheme > Eco-product Certification Scheme

ISO/IEC Guide 65


International Recognition
The Eco-product Certification Scheme (ECS) has adopted a Quality System based on ISO/IEC Guide 65:1996 as a basic management tool, involving system 5 of the product certification (including testing and surveillance of samples from factory or the open market, or both) under ISO/IEC Guide 67:2004.

The ECS product standards were developed by the consideration of harmfulness to human health and safety, adverse impact to the environment, unique market situation in Hong Kong and international eco-labelling trend. Starting from benchmarking of global eco-labelling schemes to peer review by ECS Certification Advisory Committee, the ECS product standards can fulfil both international environmental criteria and Hong Kong market needs.
