Check out how you’re doing with our Compliance Criteria! We’ve translated the Fairtrade standards into detailed compliance criteria, paving the way for you to pass your next Fairtrade audit with flying colours. These criteria pragmatically list what our auditors will be checking during an audit and thereby help to turn your uncertainty into confidence about becoming Fairtrade certified. Create your individualised checklist to see your requirements for being Fairtrade certified:
If you’re only interested in selling final packaged consumer ready products with the FAIRTRADE Mark, you don't need to be certified. The FAIRTRADE Marks are protected trademarks of Fairtrade International. The Marks are licensed for use by either Fairtrade International or your local National Fairtrade Organization. Use of any of the FAIRTRADE Marks is subject to a contractual relationship between licensee (manufacturers, producers, traders) and Fairtrade. Please find out if there is a National Fairtrade Organization that will help you in your country, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Compliance Criteria are published in several languages. In the case of an interpretation dispute in any of the published languages, the English version of the Compliance Criteria prevails.
