Welcome to the Sublicensing section of the BPI website!  The content contained in these pages is designed to provide all of the information necessary to navigate the sublicensing process as efficiently as possible.  There is a lot of information here, and it is worth setting aside the time to go through the pages in sequential order to make sure that no important details are missed.

Each of the 6 steps in the Sublicensing process has a page dedicated to it:

This page helps the licensee and sublicensee prepare for the process by discussing Sublicensing Eligibility and Cobranding.

This page details the paperwork requirements that come at the beginning of the process, as well as highlighting the difference between a Member-to-Member and Member-to-Reseller  Sublicense.

BPI requires that all products and packaging display a version of the BPI Certification Mark.  This page describes how to make sure that the use of the BPI Mark meets the requirements of the license agreement.

This page describes the invoicing options for Member-to-Reseller sublicenses.

This page details the paperwork requirements that come at the end of the process.

This page explains what to expect when the process is finished and how things like Certification Mark files, Certificates (for BPI Members), and Listings in the BPI online database are handled.
