Global Development & Industry Partner News:

GreenTag adds USA Certification Mark Status to its global certifications 
After nearly 2 1/2 years of working to achieve registration as a Certification Mark in the USA, Global GreenTag has finally received notification from the United States Patents and Trademarks Office that its Certification Mark application has been approved. This is in addition to the Australian and EU/UK Certification Mark approvals gained in the past 1-2 years. The significance of Certification Marks is that a responsible Government Body (locally its the job of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission or ACCC) assesses the Certification Program's Standard and Assessor Qualifications and approves them as 'competent to certify'. This gives the Mark formal legal status in the legislative framework of each country or region in which it is approved. With the various Marks already approved and the other applications still on foot in countries like Singapore, China, Canada and others, GreenTag is really starting to live up to its 'Global' name.
