The Made in Britain collective mark
THE official collective mark for British manufacturers is registered with UKIPO across 30 product classes. The Made in Britain collective mark unites the British manufacturing sector and helps consumers, buyers and specifiers identify products that are made in Britain.
WHO CAN USE THE OFFICIAL MADE IN BRITAIN COLLECTIVE MARK?
ONLY members of Made in Britain are licensed to use the official, protected mark. All companies that apply to use the Made in Britain mark may be asked to submit written evidence that they manufacture their products in Britain. The Made in Britain mark is accredited to businesses that sell goods that have been manufactured or have undergone a final substantial change in Britain before sale. You can check your eligibility to apply here.
Made in Britain adheres to advice on country of origin labelling included in the Trade Descriptions Act 1968. Country of origin is therefore the country in which a product last underwent a final treatment or process resulting in a substantial change. You can read all about our Terms & Conditions, including eligibility here.
Payment of the affordable annual membership fee (click to see fees) includes the licence to use the mark, which has already been prepared in multiple versions and file types so designers can use it across packaging, in print, on products and in social media. Members all receive a handbook explaining how to make the mark look correct across hundreds of different applications.
We provide all members with a complete suite of Made in Britain marks in the three formats. You can download these from our website once you have joined. And we’ve mapped out all the file types you’ll need: JPEG, CMYK, RGB, EPS so the mark looks consistent across all the thousands of ways it is being applied.
There are similar marks being used by organisations that wish to emulate the success of the official Made in Britain mark. These copy-cat marks are not registered or protected and do not provide the guarantees given by the official Made in Britain organisation. We try to protect unsuspecting organisations and customers from the risks of using these rogue marks so if you see other organisations passing themselves off as the official Made in Britain organisation, please let us know by emailing, in strictest confidence, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Similarly, if you see the official Made in Britain mark being used on a product that you suspect is not made in Britain, we'd like to know about it. Please email us at email@example.com, including a photo of the item and the mark.
