Certification Mark

"Certification Mark" performs a different role than a trademark. The certification mark is also capable of distinguishing the goods or services as the same is certified by the proprietor in respect to its origin, material, mode of manufacture or performance of services, quality, or accuracy. For example, WOOLMARK, ISI etc. fall in the category of Certification Marks. 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 and are certified by the proprietor, are called Certification Marks. These marks can be used only in accordance with defined standards.

The function of a certification mark is not to indicate trade origin but to certify that goods or services in relation to which it is applied are certified by the proprietor of the mark as to certain characteristics of the goods or services.

The provisions for registration of trademark are equally applicable to certification marks also.

Assignment or transmission of certification marks is not allowed except with the consent of the Registrar of Trade Marks for which an application has to be made in the prescribed manner.
