New Tools Available to Support the Implementation of the Revised Trademark Standard

April 20, 2018

The revised Requirements for the use of the FSC trademarks by certificate holders (FSC-STD-50-001 V2-0) became effective on March 1, 2018. FSC has developed tools to facilitate certificate holder implementation of the revised standard.

Updated Trademark Training
Trademark training courses for certificate holders and certification bodies are available on the FSC eTraining Platform. Certificate holders can contact their certification body or FSC US for instructions on how to access the training.

Trademark Quick Guide
A new Trademark Quick Guide that includes the revised trademark requirements is available. The guide provides key information from the standard, along with visual examples to help certificate holders use the trademarks on their own products and promotional materials. The Quick Guide can be downloaded on the FSC US website.

The revised trademark standard is available for download in both English and Spanish on the FSC Document Center.
