Consistent use of the title and emblem builds a strong identity that your customers will quickly identify with quality and reliability. With your help, 3M will audit and control the use of these tools, which will help strengthen and maintain its integrity in the marketplace.

Allow sufficient spacing surrounding the emblem lockup. The spacing required is 25% the size of the full emblem circle. This rule applies to all Training Emblems.
There are certain instances where it is acceptable to use just the emblem without the descriptor to the right.
These include, but are not limited to, apparel, digital, and print where the descriptor is not necessary, and the emblem is only being used to identify the certification.
Emblems can be used on dark/black backgrounds. Only change the descriptor text to white in these instances.
