2.4 What is a “certification mark”?

A certification mark is a sign that serves to certify a particular quality, accuracy, material, mode of manufacture, place of origin or other matters of another person’s goods or services by the proprietor of the certification mark and distinguish the goods or services from those that are not certified, e.g., the Taiwan fine product sign, UL electrical appliances safety sign, ST toy safety sign, and 100% wool sign, which are familiar to the average Taiwanese consumer. An applicant of a certification mark must be a juristic person, group or government agency that is capable of certifying an entity's goods or services. The use of a certification mark shall mean that the right holder of a certification mark, in order to certify the characteristics, quality, precision, origin or other matters of another person's goods or services, permits that person to display the certification mark on articles or documents in connection with the goods or services.
