Following the organisational rebranding in 2020, the legal entity that manages assurance activities of Preferred by Nature group was changed from NEPCon OÜ to Preferred by Nature OÜ as of 28 June 2022.
NEPCon OÜ is an entity that manages our accreditation and certification services. After the name change in October 2020 in which NEPCon took on a new trade name – Preferred by Nature, the legal name of Preferred by Nature’s head assurance office remained as NEPCon OÜ.
This legal name change now is solely to unify the legal name and trading name of the head assurance office. Accordingly, the legal entity name in our documents from the main assurance office will be changed going forward from NEPCon OÜ to Preferred by Nature OÜ. The certification code for certified clients will remain the same for now and our certificate holders can continue to use that in their materials.
There will be no changes to our registration number, address, email address or bank account number. The webpage for the suite of certification services that Preferred by Nature offers stays unchanged at https://preferredbynature.org/certification
The structure of our organisation remains as we are operating now. We continue to run as an international non-profit organisation as the whole Preferred by Nature group.
Please refer to this guidelines document that explains how clients and partners may use Preferred by Nature's logo as well as how they may reference Preferred by Nature in their communication.
