Legally mandated product safety labels or labelling based on national or EU guidelines – such as the German Product Safety Act (ProdSG), the CE mark, Reach, RoHS etc. – will not be evaluated because they’re required by law. The principle of sustainability, however, is rooted in voluntary commitments, not legally mandated ones.
