Review of European labelling standards under way

Current labelling standards including the Global Transport Label were developed several years ago and it has become apparent that they are not completely meeting the latest business requirements.  Several initiatives have been proposed at national level with the aim of reviewing and updating the various solutions currently in use, with work scheduled to start in some cases as early as Q1 2015.

These different initiatives require coordination in order to retain common European solutions for the benefit of both suppliers and OEMs. At the initiative of the Odette TC, it has been agreed to organise a meeting in order to make an inventory of the current situation and agree on a common way forward. This meeting is planned to take place on 20/21 January 2015 in either Paris or Berlin. New labelling requirements for the supply chain, transport and aftermarket perspectives will be considered as well as a complete review of existing and new technologies.
