Using the I Know My Products logo

tests for the entire chain.

certification can use the logo in various ways in the business’s marketing,
communication and sales.

certification are published on the tukes.fi website, listing the product areas
in which each business has completed their tests and for how long the
certification granted for each business remains valid.
