The eco-label on fire extinguishers means that they have a significantly lower environmental impact than other similar fire extinguishers. Strict requirements are set for the use of substances that are hazardous to someone's health and the environment.
- For example, no substances may be used in the extinguishing agent that are classified according to European rules as (very) toxic, harmful, corrosive, or sensitising.
- In addition, requirements are set for functional quality and product information.
If the extinguisher complies with the requirements, the approval mark may be affixed to the extinguisher.
