The decision to change the name means the following:
- Up to and including December 31 2018 the name Milieukeur can still be used.
- New quality mark holders can immediately opt for certification for On the way to PlanetProof.
- As of January 1 2019 it will only be possible to apply On the way to PlanetProof for natural products.
- To make the switch easier the tariffs for payment for PlanetProof and Milieukeur have been equalised as of October 1 2017 to conform to the lower tariffs for Milieukeur. These tariffs will remain equal in 2018.
- Existing quality marker holders that already have the PlanetProof certificate won't be charged extra to use it.
- Existing quality marker holders of Milieukeur who want to apply PlanetProof this year, should have an administrative check done by their certification institution.
