How can I use the FSC trademarks?

If your organisation already holds FSC certification or a promotional licence, you can use the FSC trademarks to promote FSC-certified products. The trademarks are also available for media and non-commercial, educational purposes.

But if the above don’t apply and you’re selling FSC-certified products, you can use the flowchart below to help you find out if you're eligible to apply for FSC chain of custody certification or an FSC promotional licence
If you want to use the FSC trademarks, but you're not sure what authorisation you need, this flowchart can help you to find out (to see a larger version, right click and open the image in a new tab):
