Many organizations can use the PEFC off-product label in order to help promote sustainable forest management and their support of PEFC.
If you don’t see yourself or your organization covered by the other user groups, you can still use the PEFC off-product logo.
For example, trade and industry associations, research and educational institutions, governmental organisations, and NGOs can all use the PEFC off-product label in order to help promote sustainable forest management and their support of PEFC.
You can create off-product labels using the PEFC Label Generator. Your account will automatically give you the label messages suitable for your business.
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.
If you don't have a PEFC trademarks usage contract, you can request the contract using this request form. PEFC International or the PEFC national member in your country will contact you and guide you through the process.
Only need to use the label once?
You may be eligible to use the PEFC label without signing a PEFC trademarks licence. One-time users of the PEFC label generally include media, universities and NGOs.
Simply fill out this request form and someone from PEFC will get back to you.
