Scope

This Guide gives procedures for the development of graphical symbols – for public information, – for use in safety signs and product safety labels, and – for use on equipment and products. Such symbols can be included in consumer documentation. This Guide does not cover road traffic signs and graphical symbols for use in technical documentation. Rules for the design of graphical symbols are given in the ISO/IEC Directives and in International Standards. This Guide brings together information on relevant international reference documents and standards to assist technical committees and designers to follow "best practice" when considering the need for a new graphical symbol.
