Extension of Public Comment Period on Draft Green Purchasing Guidelines

Based on stakeholder requests, EPA intends to extend the comment period on its proposed Draft Guidelines for Product Environmental Performance Standards and Ecolabels for Voluntary Use in Federal Procurement. The public comment period is extended from February 25, 2014, to April 25, 2014. The proposed Draft Guidelines are intended to help federal purchasers select greener products and meet sustainability purchasing goals. EPA will soon issue a Federal Register Notice, but wanted to inform you about this extra time as soon as possible. Thank you for your interest in EPA’s draft Guidelines for product environmental performance standards and ecolabels.
