Labeling Requirements

The Navy requires all licensees to properly identify all licensed products with approved hangtags, holographic stickers and/or labels purchased through JPatton, the Navy's contracted vendor for holographic trademark products.

The licensee (manufacturer) will attach these hangtags on their officially licensed and approved products. These labels reassure the consumers that they are purchasing a licensed product and helps the Navy monitor the market place for infringements.

If you would like to apply and become an official Navy licensee and meet the requirements, click here for the standard application and follow the steps listed in the application form. If you currently hold a license that is set to expire, click here for standard application renewal.
