New Tools Available to Help Certificate Holders Implement the Revised Trademark Standard

Trademark Standard FSC-STD-50-001 (V2-0) Requirements for use of the FSC trademarks by certificate holders came into effect on 1 March 2018. FSC has developed a number of tools to support stakeholders in the implementation of the revised standard.

New Trademark Training
A trademark training course for certificate holders in line with FSC-STD-50-001 (V2-0) is now available via the FSC e-Training Platform. The course provides an introduction to the FSC trademarks. It also gives an overview of their general use on products and for promotional purposes. See instructions on how to access the course available in the Resource Center in the Trademark Portal.

New Trademark Quick Guide
Our new quick guide for certificate holders follows the revised trademark requirements. The guide provides certificate holders with key information extracted from the trademark standard FSC-STD-50-001. We also included visual examples to help certificate holders use the FSC trademarks on their products and promotional materials. Please read the quick guide - available via the ‘Downloads’ section below.

Updated Trademark Portal
FSC has also revised the Trademark Portal/Label Generator to help certificate holders implement the standard. Certificate holders can now select the elements they wish to include in the label. We have also improved the functionalities of the Portal.If they have questions on these tools or generally about the revised trademark standard, certificate holders should get in touch with their certification body.
