Subject: Logos, ISO in particular


Checked after the conference call and it looks like use of the ISO logo 
would not be permitted.

From: http://www.iso.ch/iso/en/xsite/namelogo.html

 > "The ISO logo is a registered trademark. Unless authorized by ISO, use

Does explain the absence of the ISO logo on various products.

I assume from the statements at:
that there are no other ISO logos.

Since there appear to be no other ISO standards with their own logos, I 
would assume one would not be approved as part of the ISO process.

Definitive answers to these questions would require contacting the 
ISO/IEC Information Centre at: mbinfo@iso.org.

It is not clear if a standard had a logo when entering the ISO process, 
such as an OASIS standard, what would be the fate of that logo.

I think we need to get to OASIS standard status first and have a logo, 
before we raise that question.

Hope everyone is having a great day!
