For companies that already have Certified Vegan Products:
Annual Renewal – In order to be in good standing and continue to be Vegan Certified and use the Certified Vegan Logo trademark, you will need to renew your Vegan Certification every year. This involves Vegan Action contacting you to verify if there have been any changes in ingredients, suppliers, or products on file and drawing up a new Annual Agreement. In addition, we require that you submit payment for the annual licensing fee and will send you an invoice for that payment. Once we have finalized both the returned signature of the Annual Agreement and the licensing fee, we will finalize your renewal and provide you with a one-year Renewal Certificate.
Please feel free to reach out to renewal @ vegan.org if you haven’t heard from us to renew first!
Please choose the correct amount from the dropdown link below to make your annual payment.
Adding New Products or Product Updates – In order to add new products or update a formula to be Vegan Certified approved and use the Certified Vegan Logo trademark, you will need to submit those products through the online form. In addition, we require that you submit payment for the products processing fee. Once we have received both the online submission for product additions and the processing fee, we will assign your request to a Vegan Action Certifier as soon as possible.
ONLINE SUBMISSION – Please use this link to submit your Add New Product request and all required documents.

There is also a Product Addition and Product Update Processing Fee for each submission (not each product). Please choose the correct amount from the dropdown link below to make that payment.
If the annual licensing fee is not paid within the specified time constraints as listed in the licensing agreement, the account will be considered past due and delinquent.
We do not charge fees for late payments however, we do require all past due licensing fees in arrears be paid in full in order to be up to date and applicable for a current licensing agreement.
If you received a cancellation notification but are eligible for renewal and are interested in reinstating your Vegan Certification, there is a reinstatement fee of $100 in addition to renewing past due years as well as signing an updated Vegan Certification Licensing Agreement. Otherwise you will need to reapply as a new applicant.
If you have defaulted in your renewal and have opted to reinstate your Vegan Certification Annual Licensing Agreement you may pay the $100 fee below.
