The BSA Licensing Insider, Vol. 2, No. 3, featured information about the Officially Licensed Product Seal.
Officially Licensed Product Seal When the Boy Scouts of America Officially Licensed Product Seal (OLPS) is used on a product, it signals to the consumer that the product or service being purchased has been authorized by the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).
The manufacturer of the product is contractually bound, has undergone a strict review process to uphold quality standards, and is subject to regular review of its manufacturing processes to comply with product liability and safety requirements, including those defined by the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA).
Officially licensed products are also backed by the BSA commitment to satisfaction and our money-back guarantee. Furthermore, the seal represents the Boy Scouts of America promise that the product will be consistent with the high quality consumers expect from the Boy Scouts of America.
Products without the Officially Licensed Product Seal are not authorized by the Boy Scouts of America and may not measure up to the required standards.
Look for this identifier in addition to the holographic security label or other approved brand authenticity measures that current BSA licensees are required to place on every licensed item sold.
These security measures are designed to help consumers identify and track authorized licensed merchandise in the retail landscape.
Please be alert to any products or materials using BSA trademarks without the Officially Licensed Product Seal and holographic security labels. Help us keep the brand’s value intact by reporting any possible infringements to the BSA at http://www.bsalicensing.org.
