Certificate Holder Resources


We hope that you find the trademark standard FSC-STD-50-001 (V1-2): Requirements for use of the FSC trademarks by Certificate Holders clear and easy to use. Compliance with this standard is mandatory for all FSC certificate holders using the FSC trademarks. To facilitate certificate holders’ and their commitment to FSC, we have developed the Trademark Quick Guide for Certificate Holders and FAQ on trademark use by FSC® Certificate Holders to complement the trademark standard 50-001.

The quick guide provides important information extracted from the trademark standard 50-001 with visual examples to help trademark users understand how the rules are implemented.

The FAQ answers frequently asked questions about the requirements for use of the FSC trademarks by certificate holders.

These documents are available in ten languages: English, Chinese (Mandarin), Dutch, French, German, Japanese, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
