Trademark Use Approval Process

(© Freepik.com)© Freepik.comThe FSC promotional trademark licence enables you to use the FSC trademarks on websites, in catalogues, flyers and in press releases. Artwork should be designed in line with the guidelines and a draft version submitted to FSC UK for approval.

Evidence must be submitted for each new FSC certified product you wish to promote to verify that the products you wish to promote are FSC certified and have come directly from an FSC certified supplier. We need you to do this because many suppliers sell both FSC and non-FSC products.

The evidence should be in the form of an invoice from your certified supplier(s), stating the FSC products being supplied, their associated FSC claim(s) and the certificate number of the supplier. Financial information can be blacked out. If invoices are not available, a letter from your supplier(s) may be acceptable.

More details of the evidence to be submitted will be provided with your FSC promotional trademark licence application form.

The FSC Trademark Use Guide for Promotional Licence Holders replaced standard FSC-STD-50-002 V1-0 Requirements for promotional use of the FSC trademarks by non-certificate holders on 1 June 2019, with a 12 month transition period. The document provides guidance for promotional licence holders to use the FSC trademarks for the promotion of FSC-certified products and related services.
