You will receive an update on your progress and next steps within two to four weeks. If your product is eligible to move forward in the verification process, you will be required to submit documents to prove that your product complies with any applicable restrictions (details will be provided).
Once these documents have been submitted, you will be notified within four to six weeks whether your product has been approved, is ineligible for licensing or requires further documentation.
If the product is approved, you will receive the licensing contract and master affidavit.
When the contract is finalized, you will receive access to and training on how to use the mark.
Note: You may not use the EWG VERIFIED™ mark until your products have been assessed and you have entered into a signed written licensing agreement.
