ON PRODUCT CLAIMS AND LABELS

Information for Certificate Holders

FSC Label (© FSC A.C.)© FSC A.C.The name Forest Stewardship Council, the acronym FSC and the FSC logo are all registered trademarks which may not be used without prior authorisation. There are many rules associated with how FSC trademarks can be used and this page aims to explain some of them.

Please note that the only time an FSC label can be applied to a product or an FSC claim can be made on a sales or delivery note is when it is done by an FSC certified company and it relates to one of their FSC certified product groups. An FSC certified company must establish product groups for the purpose of controlling FSC output claims and labelling. Product groups must be formed by one or more output products that:

  • Belong to the same product type in accordance with FSC-STD-40-004a
  • Are controlled according to the same FSC control system

Information about the steps you need to take to be able to use the FSC trademarks can be found here.
