Sublicensing vs. Certifying
When is a Sublicense Necessary?
When a company purchases BPI-certified product from a supplier for resale purposes, REBRANDED with their own brand name INSTEAD of the supplier’s brand.
When a company purchases BPI-certified product for resale purposes and the product carries BOTH the company’s brand AND the manufacturer’s identifier. In this case, EITHER the supplier’s BPI cert number or the purchaser’s cert number can be displayed on the product.
