From the date of the launch, certificate holders will have a transition period of 2.5 years during which time the old and/or the new label may be used.

The extended transition period aims to ensure that certificate holders can introduce the new label as part of their ongoing artwork revisions.

During a comprehensive, multi-stakeholder process which led to the Strategy for MIX products and controlled wood, a change of the MIX label text was agreed as part of a wider package of actions.

In December 2019 a working group was established to support the implementation of the change to the MIX label text. The proposal of the working group has been approved by the Board of Directors and FSC is now pleased to announce the new text of the MIX label.

The new MIX label will be available in the FSC Trademark Portal from 1 January 2022 and from 1 July 2024, only the new MIX label will be available for use.
