|Toelichting (Engels)||The Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the EU Commission has developed a proposal of criteria for the EU Ecolabel for flushing toilets and urinals. The limits for maximum full flush (6 l/flush) and reduced flush volume (3 l/flus) are too high, as according to the background report the values are very close to the standard toilet. In addition to being 95% of the market share, 6l/flush is a common reference in case of mandatory requirements and in voluntary schemes. However, up to 4 l/flush can be achieved by installations in Nordic countries and this level is also recommended in new UK housing market.|
