The preferred colour of the mark, as per annex 1, must be used on a light background or be white on a dark background. Alternatively, the mark may be printed or displayed in a single colour, which is the predominant ink colour used on the product, or the permanently fixed label/plate, or the document/pre-printed letterhead.

The client shall not use the Certification Mark or the Accreditation Mark on test reports or certificates of compliance such as calibration certificates or certificates of analysis.
Under no conditions shall the logo be affixed to a product or used in any way that might suggest product certification. The logo applies only to System Certification.
The right to use the certification logo by the certified client cannot be transferred to any other person, entity, or corporation (including through a change of ownership of the Organization) without LA’s prior written approval.
After expiration, suspension and withdrawal of any LA certificate, the client should discontinue using the LA Mark for any promotional or other use.
