Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Brand Control Agreement (BCA) and what are the conditions?
The Brand Control Agreement will allow approved customers to continue purchasing Swarovski crystals from authorized partners. However, this does not entitle them to use the Swarovski brand in any way when selling finished products embellished with Swarovski Crystals. In other words, the Brand Control Agreement can only be granted to companies, manufacturers, and designers who have their own brand, or to nail technicians/nail salons. These entities must understand that mentioning the Swarovski name in their marketing is strictly defined and forbidden.
Who can sign the BCA?
Only legal entities, manufacturers, and designers with their own brand, as well as nail technicians/nail salons, can qualify for the BCA. Private customers and resellers are not eligible for this agreement.
Where can I apply for the BCA?
The application form must be filed through an authorized Swarovski distributor. You can find this form on our website HERE
How long should I wait for Swarovski's approval after applying for the BCA?
