Eurocare's second library of alcohol health warning labels

Eurocare proudly presents the second library of alcohol health warning labels. It is Eurocare’s wish that this proposal will serve as a starting point for much needed discussion around labelling of alcoholic beverages in the European Union (EU).

In the long term, it is Eurocare’s hope that a library of health warning messages will be prepared at the EU level by the European Commission. Moreover, it should be made available to all EU Member States and alcohol producers.

In this document Eurocare would like to present its recommendations and ideas for such a library. It is hoped that they will be a constructive starting point for preparation of library of health warning labels at the EU level, similar to that which has already been developed for tobacco products.
