only gives the tick but - has the tick!

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.
