From the 1st January 2020, all LEAF Marque certificates will list the business’ LEAF Marque certified products. Businesses must list all their products when completing the LEAF Sustainable Farming Review or editing LEAF Charity Membership Information. During a LEAF Marque Audit, this information will be verified by auditors (see LEAF Marque Standard v16.1: Control Point 1.3).
For information on the products eligible for LEAF Marque certification, and the product codes, see the LEAF Product List.
Obtaining stakeholder feedback is an essential process in revising the LEAF Marque Standard, and public consultation plays an important part.

For a synopsis of the feedback received and response by LEAF Marque, please see the Public Consultation Synopsis. We welcome feedback on the LEAF Marque Standard at any time, please get in touch at [email protected].
