Welcome to the Nordic Ecolabelling declaration site

This is where you as a supplier help your customer in connection with their application to obtain a Nordic Swan Ecolabel licence by declaring your items* in the Supply Chain Declaration Portal, also known as the SCDP.

* Item is a general term for various products and materials. For example chemicals, laminates, glass and fabrics.

Nordic Ecolabelling uses your information when evaluating a licence application. If specific properties need to be shared with your customers, it will be stated in the requirements. Everything else is treated confidentially by Nordic Ecolabelling.

In the declaration portal you can also state which customers should be able to find and select your items.

Here are the areas of items you can declare for

    • AI0002  Adhesives and chemicals used for coating used in the manufacturing of paper board/corrugated board
    • AI0010  Chemicals used in the production of printed matter
    • AI0009  Substrates other than paper used in Nordic Swan Ecolabel Printing Companies (e.g. film/foils made of plastic, textiles, boards made of wood, metal, plastic)
    • AI0021  Paper board/corrugated board used in Nordic Swan Ecolabel Printing Companies
    • AI0020  Finishing suppliers used by Nordic Swan Ecolabel Printing Companies
    • AI0001  Paper used in Nordic Swan Ecolabel Printing Companies

    Please, declare copying and printing paper in the MSA portal.

How to get started

  • Please, read the terms and conditions carefully.

  • Please, ask the person responsible (here called competent contact) at your company for login credentials to the Supply Chain Declaration Portal. 

    You will then receive an e-mail with a personal user name and password from Nordic Ecolabelling. The usename and password must not be shared with others.

  • Please, read the Declaration guide (download below) carefully before you start declaring.

    In the portal, you will find which properties of your items your customer needs you to declare. Ask your customer for their Application ID in the Nordic Ecolabelling Portal where they apply, since you have to state that and the customers company name in the Supply Chain Declaration Portal.

    When working, you will be able to keep track of and maintain all your declarations. You may also add new declarations or make changes or extensions of items.

    In the Supply Chain Declaration Portal you can keep track of:

    • your company contacts registered
    • history and documentation
    • declared properties of your items in ongoing and finalised declarations

    The portal also contains a library with product sheets, security sheets, test protocols and other documents your company use in the declaration process.

  • A declaration of an item is solely a declaration of key data to be used in a complex and comprehensive application process. The declaration is therefore not an approval, nor a disapproval of the item, and the item is neither approved nor certified by Nordic Ecolabelling. 

    Hence, the item will not carry the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and must not be presented as ecolabelled.
