GENICES: the peer review process for GEN member organisations

This is the GEN Internationally Coordinated Ecolabelling System. It is a peer review process that benchmarks members as a basis for mutual trust and confidence, after which they may have input on standards/specifications to be included in the common internationally accepted database of criteria.

Based on the pillars of Trust, Proof and Understanding, GENICES shares information among qualified members to:

  • Help new programmes start more quickly
  • Facilitate certification of products that have been certified elsewhere
  • Make international certification more cost-effective
  • Facilitate exports of environmentally certified products
  • Address and allay concerns about trade barriers

If you are a member of GEN, see examples of GENICES applications on the Members Only Page.
