3 Steps to sign your FSC Trademark License Agreement

The TLA is a legal document which determines the relationship between FSC and the organization holding an FSC certification. It grants you the right to use the FSC trademarks for both on-product labelling and promotional use - provided prior approval was given by your certification body. The new FSC TLA determines new rules that improve FSC’s ability to uncover and block organizations selling non-certified products. Its legal requirements are set out in the so-called GDPR, the European legislation governing data protection. You can sign the new TLA electronically, at any time, on a wide variety of devices.

The FSC Certification Portal 

The FSC certification portal will be used by FSC to communicate about any revision of the certification requirements. This way the certificate holder can receive certification requirement updates from both their certification body and from FSC directly. Thanks to this modernization, several administrative steps involving the certification body, will not be necessary anymore.
