For vendors: About the Respects Your Freedom (RYF) program

Companies interested in getting RYF certification for a given hardware product (digital devices, computers, components for computers, and computer-controlled devices) should review our general guidelines for certification. If you have any questions or believe you have a product eligible for certification, please contact

A company whose product is certified will be eligible to:

  • Display the Respects Your Freedom certification mark on the certified product's packaging, marketing, and other materials
  • Use the FSF name and the Respects Your Freedom certification program name in press releases and advertising, including quotes from FSF executives
  • Promote the certified product through the FSF's own channels, either jointly with your own or separately
