Guidelines for Use of the ACVR Certification Mark

ACVR Certificatiion Mark

I. Purpose of ACVR Certification Mark

The ACVR Certification Mark may be used on professional stationery, electronic correspondence, and/or business cards of ACVR Diplomates such that their certification within the ACVR can be appropriately recognized.

II. The ACVR Certification Mark is registered trademark and shall be used according to these guidelines.

A. Individual stationery or electronic documents should not be designed to visually mimic the heading of the ACVR stationery.

B. The ACVR Certification Mark may only be used by an ACVR Diplomate. The ACVR Certification Mark may be used on professional stationery or electronic documents of the ACVR Diplomate or that of the practice with which the ACVR Diplomate is affiliated. The ACVR Certification Mark should not be used to imply that the practice is approved by the ACVR, but instead that an ACVR Diplomate is affiliated with the practice. Whenever the practice stationery or electronic document with the ACVR Certification Mark is used by someone other than the ACVR Diplomate, the business listing on the stationery or electronic document should identify both the signee of the stationery or author of the electronic document and the ACVR Diplomate.

C. The size of the ACVR Certification Mark shall not be enlarged (approximate size is 1" in diameter) on stationery, as it is intended to be as small and professional as possible while still being easily readable. The ACVR Certification Mark may be enlarged on electronic documents as long as it projects a professional appearance. If appropriate, clicking on the ACVR Certification Mark in an electronic document should transfer to the ACVR Web site.

D. The ACVR Certification Mark may be located at either the head or the foot of the stationery or electronic document page, in either right or left corners or center, as is compatible with a professional image. Other colors for the logo may be used as long as they project a professional appearance.

E. The ACVR Certification Mark should never be combined with another logo or piece of artwork to create a new identity. It may be placed adjacent to other logos or artwork but should remain as a separate distinct graphic.

F. Specific questions regarding appropriate use of the ACVR Certification Mark should be directed to the Constitutional Review Committee Chair. Improper use of the ACVR Mark or Certification Mark could be interpreted as professional misconduct and thus, could be grounds for disciplinary action by the American College of Veterinary Radiology.
