Are certified suppliers required to label their products with standards information and logos? Or is this optional?

Once CCS 3.0 is mandatory, direct suppliers will no longer be able to submit claim approval applications with their CB. Instead, brands will be required to do so for final product labeling. Suppliers may still attach the approved label/hangtag to the product on behalf of the brands. It is not required for a certified supplier to label their product in a B2B transaction, but they may still use the logo for business to business (B2B) marketing and claims and will need to have those claims approved by their CBs.
