By using Craft Technology e-label you can have a 100% certainty that you are 100% compliant with the law regardless of changes that might occur in the future. The law states that you are prohibited from collecting personally identifiable information or display marketing content alongside mandatory information that the law requires.
Implementing e-labels on your own website requires thorough research of regulations, a significant investment in programming and development, and monitoring regulatory changes to ensure continuous compliance for your business. Each e-label should have a unique QR code linked to a specific wine bottle, specifying the year and volume. For example, the same wine of the same year in 0.75 and 1-liter bottles will have different QR codes. These codes and associated links must remain active until the last bottle of that wine is available on the market, which could be 10-15 years. The e-label for each wine must be available in all 24 official languages of the European Union or translated into the language of the country where the wine is sold. It’s important to note that common user tracking tools such as Google Analytics or Google Fonts should not be used. Additionally, marketing or any other promotional messages should not appear on e-labels. To ensure complete elimination of tracking, it is recommended to set up e-labels on a separate hosting compared to the regular website and online store, which is financially a significantly more expensive option.
As of December 8, 2023, all wines intended for sale within the European Union must comply with the new EU wine labeling regulations. This means that any wine receiving approval for market release after December 8 must meet the criteria for correct labeling.
Yes, generate a QR code for physical labels, and after obtaining laboratory analysis, feel free to fill in all the fields necessary for generating e-labels. This is one of the important features of dynamic codes.
The e-label must be available online for users and regulatory authorities to review as long as the wine is present on the market in any EU country where it is sold.
No problem. Links from our software can be easily redirected to another software without any charge. In the new software, all your labels from previous vintages will be available for users and regulatory authorities to view. You continue to generate new e-labels on the newly selected platform.
For each country within the EU, the responsible authority within that country will oversee the implementation of the regulation.
You can conduct the analysis in certified laboratories. We have compiled a list of all laboratories in Croatia, listed on the pages of the Ministry of Agriculture, which should offer winemakers the possibility of additional analyses to comply with the new EU regulations. We are currently compiling a list of all certified laboratories in EU and abroad. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will provide you with the list. You will also find it on our website along with relevant details as soon as we gather all the informations.
The e-label needs to be translated into the language of the EU member state or the market where you sell the wine. If you only sell in your own country, the e-label should be generated in your official language. However, if your wine is expected to be sold in another EU market in the near future, that language must also be supported. To facilitate this process, we have automated the translation process, making your e-labels available in all 24 official languages of the European Union. Translation into numerous other foreign languages is also available, all with the aim of providing a better user experience for potential buyers.
Currently, EU regulations only apply to wine. However, breweries have been listing nutritional values and ingredient lists on their products for several years now. According to announcements, there is a possibility that the same regulations will officially begin to apply to other alcoholic products.
