FSC Trademarks

The FSC trademarks offer a guarantee that products comes from responsible sources.

The FSC trademarks are the primary tool for organisations seeking to communicate responsible sourcing of forest products or wishing to promote good forest management standards.

FSC products are tracked and labelled according to the FSC chain of custody system, which enables customers to identify them in stores and promotional materials. It is vital that the trademarks are used correctly, and that no claims are associated with non-certified products or with product attributes that are not within the scope of FSC certification.

FSC carefully monitors and protects the way the FSC trademarks are used around the world. By making sure the FSC trademarks are used appropriately, we keep them credible –and that’s what enables businesses to leverage the trust we have built with consumers globally.


Important: Only those who have obtained authorization to use FSC trademarks (through the relevant trademark licence agreement) are permitted to use the FSC trademarks. The use of FSC Trademarks must be in compliance with FSC trademark standards and guidelines.

If you suspect that the FSC label is being misused, please report this immediately.
