The awarding body for the Blue Angel ecolabel

RAL-LogoRAL gGmbH is responsible for awarding the Blue Angel. It accepts the individual applications from the respective economic sectors offering the relevant products or services and then checks their compliance with the requirements and the full provision of the verification documentation. RAL gGmbH also obtains a statement from the federal state that is home to the applicant about the company's compliance with the environmental requirements. When all basic award criteria have been fulfilled, RAL gGmbH concludes a contract on the use of the environmental label with the applicant.

Furthermore, RAL gGmbH organises and carries out the expert hearings as part of the development process for new environmental labels and the revision of existing labels.
