Yes, in order to be certified, your business must acknowledge that CertClean’s Standards is dynamic and will evolve to reflect the latest science, regulations and other relevant considerations, and your company must demonstrate ongoing commitment to the certification criteria. This means, if you re-formulate or produce new products, these products must be submitted for approval prior to commercialization.
No, you would need to submit an application specific to your company in order to obtain the right to use the CertClean logo; only certified companies are licensed to use the CertClean logo.
The certification is non-transferable. Even if a company may produce white label products for other companies, it is only their own branded products that will be certified. An uncertified company has not agreed to the terms of the certification, such as demonstrate compliance for all new products, submit revised ingredients list before a re-formulated product is commercial, etc.
