Promotional use of the PEFC label
The PEFC off-product label can be used for a variety of purposes and users, from retailers highlighting their procurement of PEFC-certified products, to certification bodies promoting their ability to offer PEFC certification.
No matter the reason, by using the PEFC off-product label, organizations help to promote the importance of sustainable forest management worldwide – and we want to help you do this!
If you want to use the PEFC label for promotional purposes, please contact the PEFC office in your country for more information. You can also request a PEFC trademarks usage contract using this request form.
Once you have signed your trademarks contract, you will be given access to the PEFC Label Generator and you’ll be able to start producing your labels.
Already using the PEFC label but need access to the new Label Generator?
If you already have a PEFC logo usage licence and are using the PEFC labels, you will need to sign a new PEFC trademarks usage contract (or accept an amendment to your current contract) to access the new Label Generator. Don’t worry, your PEFC trademarks licence number won’t change.
The exact process varies from country to country, but PEFC will contact you with more information and provide you with the new contract. You will be contacted by PEFC before 14 August 2022.
If you already have access to the previous version of the Label Generator, you should continue to use this until contacted by PEFC. For more information, please contact the PEFC office in your country, you can find the contact details here.
