Global GreenTagCertTM now not only gives the tick but - has the tick!

Global GreenTag is now Australia's premier product certification scheme having recently been accredited by the Australian Consumer and Competition Commission (ACCC) as a National Certification Mark. This gives the Global GreenTagCertTM scheme and logo the highest form of independent recognition possible making it one of only a few of its kind in the world.

According to the World Intellectual Property Organisation any Certification Mark registered entity is considered "competent to certify" the products concerned by the certifying agency i.e. the ACCC and IP Australia, both Federal Government agencies.
