A certification mark is a mark used by companies to indicate that their products and services have certain characteristics, or product quality or a certain geographic origin. It may be important to note that the owner of the certification mark cannot use it for their own goods and services. The owner has the power to authorize others to use it and thus, ensure that the mark is properly used. A certification mark is thus defined as the mark which is capable of distinguishing the goods or services in respect of its material, mode of manufacture, performance of service, quality or accuracy. According to law, these marks can only be used in accordance with defined standards. Certification marks are given for compliance with defined standards, but they are not restricted to any membership. They may be used by anyone who certifies that the products meet certain established standards. An excellent example of certification mark is “WOOLMARK” which, is a registered trademark used for pure wool fabrics and certifies that the goods on which it is used are made of 100% wool.
