The certification scheme was created to attest the Italian origin of the production of finished articles, in this case accessories, components and objects pertinent with leather sector (i.e. bags, leather goods, footwear, apparel, heels, soles, trimmings, different accessories, etc..), according to the in-force laws which can be applied for the different types of articles.

To appoint the basis “made in Italy”, the reference are the non-preferential origin custom rules (COUNCIL REGULATION (EEC) Nr. 2913/92 of 12 October 1992), which establish, for the different types of articles, the last economically justified substantial transformation that defines the origin denomination.

To appoint the “100% made in Italy” (from design to production, all the process is carried out in Italy) the reference is Italian DL 135/2009 art.16.

When also "Italian production materials" are added to “100% made in Italy”, there is the maximum possible Made in Italy level, that is expression of the excellence and handcrafting of the fully Italian products.

ICEC defined different logos and labels for the owners of the above mentioned certifications; these must be affixed on the certified products in order to communicate correctly the obtained Made in Italy.
