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).

The World Health Organization, Europe kindly offered the European Alcohol Policy Alliance (Eurocare) to organize a workshop on ― Preventing and reducing alcohol related harm – a shared responsibility and this report includes presentations from that workshop as well as some background for further debate.

Preliminary library of alcohol health information and warning labels

It features only those measures drawn from the national legislation. By clicking on a country, a list of its alcohol regulations will appear. Clicking on a specific indicator makes it possible to compare regulations across countries. An explanatory text appears when the mouse is moved over the selected indicator.

The database is available in three languages, including English.
