FSC Certificate Holders

(CoC and FM/CoC)

FSC Certified Brush (© FSC A.C.)© FSC A.C.FSC certification ensures that FSC materials and products have been checked at every stage of processing. FSC certificate holders are allowed to use the FSC trademarks for:

1. On-product labels

2. Off-product promotion of their certified products and themselves as FSC certificate holders

Certificate holders should have access to both the FSC Certificate Holder Portal, from where the FSC logo and FSC labels, featuring the certificate holder’s trademark licence code, can be downloaded and the ‘Forests For All Forever’ Marketing Toolkit. If you hold an FSC certificate and wish to use the FSC trademarks, please contact your certification body for approval.


Do I need FSC certification?

If you are, or plan to be, engaged in any of the following activities and wish to use the FSC trademarks, you will need to hold FSC Chain of Custody certification:

  • Processing or transforming FSC certified products, including manufacturing, repackaging, relabelling or adding other forest based components to the product
  • Applying the FSC label to a product
  • Passing on the FSC claims to subsequent customers through sales and delivery documents
