Want to make the right choice when you're out and about? The CHOICE Recommended scheme makes shopping easier.
CHOICE allows manufacturers to use the CHOICE Recommended logo on a range of products, so you can make the right choice in a flash.
Of course we don't just give this recommendation to just anyone – the program is subject to licence conditions and can only be used by companies with a product that has met CHOICE's strict testing standards for performance and excellence.
How it works
- CHOICE has always been in the business of testing products so we can help consumers buy the best.
- Manufacturers and businesses can now apply for a non-exclusive licence to use a CHOICE Recommended logo if their model appears in a CHOICE 'What to Buy' list in CHOICE magazine or online.
- Any model recommended in the CHOICE 'What to Buy' list – for products that have been through our rigorous, defensible schedule of testing based on Australian or International Standards or developed by CHOICE experts – is eligible to apply for a licence.
- The CHOICE Recommended logo can be used for marketing only the models that are recommended by CHOICE.
- Licenses are valid for six or 12 months, depending on the cycle of CHOICE testing.
- Fees are used for administration and investment into further CHOICE testing and research.
- The logo carries the date of the CHOICE recommendation (month/year).
- Fees are negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
CHOICE buys all the products we test anonymously. The CHOICE Recommended scheme is a byproduct of our testing and does not determine what products we test.
Funds from licence fees cover administration, policing of abuse and staffing. Any surplus funds are reinvested into the CHOICE testing program. The fee structure is dependent on the length of the licence, the number of products licensed by the same manufacturer and the nature of its use.
