Sustainable management begins with design
To ecodesign is to identify, when a product/service is planned, all the environmental impacts that it can produce in each of the stages of its life cycle, in order to try to reduce them to the minimum, without having an adverse effect on quality and the product's applications.
AENOR's Ecodesign certificate demonstrates that the organisation has adopted a system of management to identify, monitor and constantly improve its products' and/or services' environmental aspects, providing information to its clients on products that have incorporated environmental improvements via their design, in accordance with the specifications of UNE-EN ISO 14006.

Ecodesign certification is applicable to all sectors where products and/or services are designed or redesigned. Currently, the sectors most likely to be interested are those affected by the European Union's Comprehensive Product Policy or those participating in bids for tenders who have to respond to environmental considerations included in the conditions. They include sectors such as products that use energy, the car industry, chemicals, furniture, building and architects' studios.
Ecodesign management systems can be audited together with UNE-EN ISO 9001 quality management systems and/or UNE-EN-ISO 14001 environmental management, since standard UNE-EN-ISO 14006 is complementary to these.
The experience acquired by companies in the sector that have already been certified under the UNE-EN ISO 9001 standard or the UNE-EN-ISO 14001 standard is very valuable for undertaking this new certification process and verification of Ecodesign requirements can be included as part of the audits for follow-up and renewal of these standards with the consequent saving in audit time and costs.
Once the certification process has been passed, if the system implemented meets the requirements of Standard UNE-EN ISO 14006, your organisation shall obtain:
AENOR has been rendering certification services under this standard since 2005, having issued 65 Ecodesign certificates.
