Safety, the first aspect of the Ecogarantie key values

Safety

We guarantee safe products for everybody: employees, consumers and animals. Therefore, raw materials as well as finished products must meet a high quality standard, so it’s secure to produce for the employees and of course safe to use by the consumers. Moreover, animal safety is a big concern as well: animal testing is not allowed at all by the European legislation.

Ecologically, the third aspect of the Ecogarantie key values

Ecologically

The ecological footprint should be the lowest possible. Therefore we created an ingredient protocol. This implies to respect certain rules: used ingredients need to have a qualitative origin, be renewable if possible and in case of vegetable extracts, they must be 100% organic. Lastly, we demand to respect the nature: low emissions, reasonable transport, no toxicity and good biodegradability.

Moreover, our independent third-party auditing bodies control if they really are such companies. Via their reports, Ecogarantie decides whether a brand can use our label for the products or not.

Second, there is an extensive control of the company

Control

The awarding of the Ecogarantie label depends on a certification that is carried out by an accredited third-party certification body (Certisys, TÜV Nord Integra or Quality Partner). This certification body who have to be certified according to ISO 17065, ensures that the products comply with the Ecogarantie specifications and delivers a certificate to our members. An independent certification guarantees a higher degree of reliability.

Then Ecogarantie gets a report with the results

Report

If the products comply with the specifications, the certification body sends us a report that we read and check. Besides, we will verify which product(s) can be labelled and authorise our new member to affix the Ecogarantie logo on their product(s).

There is also a yearly follow-up

Follow-up

Please note that the Ecogarantie label is not granted forever. The certification is valid for one year but is renewable. The certification body will regularly control the labelled products to check their compliance. Our members must therefore keep their standards and frequently carry out a check-up.

Ecogarantie Team

Probila Unitrab’s Ecogarantie team handles day-to-day operational matters and strives to ensure smooth operations and fast communication between members. The Ecogarantie team is also responsible for the general organisation, such as the general meeting.

At the annual general meetings, all concerns of the users of the Ecogarantie label are heard. There they can submit their amendments to the standards. The committee appointed by the members’ meeting then discusses the correct and sensible amendments with experts, thus ensuring that the standards is constantly updated at a high level.

Organisational regulation of all kinds of surveys :

The question (sent by email or telephone) is received by the communication manager. If it is a complaint, the communications manager forwards it to the board of directors for discussion. The Board then informs the Communication Manager of the decision taken. The operator will then receive a response.
If the question is about an ingredient, the communication manager informs him/her that he/she must turn to his/her control body and register on the “ecogarantie.pro” website in order to follow up his/her request.

The inspection body that receives the question concerning the ingredient fills in one of the two forms on the ecogarantie.pro website (exemption or authorisation) and then gives its opinion on the question.
Once this has been done, the other two inspection bodies are informed by email that a question is pending and consult each other internally. They then give their opinion on the matter via a form.

Once the question has been answered in all three ways, it is filed directly in one of the databases on the page.

If the control bodies have any doubts, they then fill in a form and send it to the Probila communications manager.
The latter contacts the expert, who discusses with the other members of the board of directors.

Once a decision has been taken, the Board sends the response to the Probila communications manager, who then transfers it to the control bodies. The final decision is thus taken.

The operator who asked the question can follow the question’s progress and obtain the answer by looking at the lists of exceptions and exceptional authorisations published on the ecogarantie.pro website.
