NL: Quality marks ‘Less is more’

10 September 2014

Since the launch of the online quality mark database in March 2014, Dutch independent educational organisation Milieu Centraal has received many applications from manufacturers to adjust their quality mark evaluation. According to Milieu Centraal, it remains difficult to provide clear information, criteria and explanations on controls as well as justification on the quality marks.
As a counter reaction and next step, Milieu Centraal proposes to select a limited number of quality marks per similar product category in order to promote awareness of the quality mark and improve transparency and control efficiency (News Item Milieu Centraal, July 2014).
