Download PDF

Per ISO/IEC 17065, DrJ shall exercise the control as specified by the certification scheme over ownership, use and display of licenses, certificates, marks of conformity, and any other mechanisms for indicating a product is certified. This document outlines the requirements for approved use of DrJ's certification mark.

Description:

The DrJ Engineering certification mark consists of a black slanted parallelogram with the term "DR" in it adjacent to a lower green slanted parallelogram with the letter "J" in it. The non-graphical portion of the certification mark consists of “TER No.” followed by a specific TER number.

Allowable Format/Layout:

The DrJ certification mark may only be used by a company whose product has been certified by the TER. Upon granting product certification, DrJ will supply the company with the certification mark. A product evaluated by a DrJ Technical Evaluation Report (TER) shall be labelled on the product or packaging with the appropriate TER number for said product, such as “DrJ TER No. XXXX-XX”. A product may also use the DrJ certification mark on the product or packaging, but the use of the graphical portion of the certification mark is not required (see below for examples).

Only the mark/files provided by DrJ may be used on a product label. A company may choose to resize graphical portion of the mark by making it larger or smaller, but the mark must be legible and remain in proportion to the original design.

Client Responsibilities Regarding DrJ's Certification Mark:

Per the terms and conditions included in the TER Application, each client agrees to abide by DrJ's current and any future guidelines for use of its certification mark.

  • The client complies with any requirements that may be prescribed in the certification scheme relating to the use of marks of conformity, and on information related to the product.
  • DrJ maintains control over ownership, use and display of licenses, certificates, marks of conformity, and any other mechanisms for indicating that a product is certified.
  • Incorrect references to the certification scheme, or misleading use of licenses, certificates, marks, or any other mechanism for indicating a product is certified, found in documentation or other publicity, shall be dealt with by suitable action.
