Prior to gaining Woolmark certification products must meet or exceed the requirements of the relevant product specification. View the comprehensive set of Product Specifications to ensure Woolmark Quality Standards are maintained and to see if your product qualifies.

2. Submit your products for acceptance testing

For a small, non-refundable application fee you will be asked to submit your products for acceptance testing in an independent testing laboratory to ensure they meet the quality standards set out in our Product Specifications. A Woolmark Company representative will contact you to arrange a visit to explain the Woolmark Licensing Program in more detail.

Should your products fail to meet our standards we will advise you of the steps you need to make to improve product quality.

3. Receive your Woolmark licence membership

Following successful completion of product acceptance testing and payment of an annual licence fee, we will issue you with a unique licence number and certificate. We will also provide you with access to Woolmark tickets, labels and merchandising support material, which will enable you to make optimum use of the brand(s) to which you are licensed.

A Woolmark licence allows you to use one of our logos as an independent quality endorsement on your products. Each of our three main brands - Woolmark, Woolmark Blend and Wool Blend - are licensed separately.

Quality assurance advice 

We can provide you with quality assurance advice on your products and will assist you to undertake ongoing quality testing you may require.

Our brands have a strong global reputation as an independent quality assurance endorsement and we have a legal requirement to provide consumers with certainty that its brands are being used according to our specifications. As such we carry out spot checks on products labelled with our trademarks and take action to remove sub-standard or counterfeit products from the market.
