If you rely on FM Approvals’ certification marks, you’ll need a clear understanding of how and when they’re used.
For All Marks
FM Approvals’ certification marks should be used only in conjunction with products or services that have been FM Approved. Additionally, only original artwork issued by FM Approvals should be used.
Our marks should not be altered in any way other than to resize the artwork proportionally. There is no minimum size requirement for FM Approvals’ certification marks, but they must be large enough to be readily identifiable. They should be produced in black on a light background, or in reverse on a dark background.
