Use of the ITU and Plenipotentiary Conference Logos

Use of the ITU and Plenipotentiary Conference Logos



    ITU logo

  1. The ITU logo forms an essential part of the Union’s institutional image and property. As such, it is protected under the provisions of Article 6ter of the Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property.

  2. The ITU logo may therefore not be used without the prior written consent of the Secretary-General or his representative duly authorized to that effect. Any written request to use the Union's logo must be duly substantiated (detailed information regarding the reasons for the request, manner in which it is intended to use the logo including details of the supports (electronic, paper, etc.) to be used, and possible use of other logos alongside that of ITU, as well as the precise contact details of the person making the request, etc.) and sent in a timely manner to the Legal Affairs Unit, ITU, Place des Nations, 1211 Geneva 20 (jur@itu.int).



  3. Without prejudice to a detailed, case-by-case study of each request, authorization to use the Union's logo WILL NOT BE GRANTED in the following cases:
  4. Where authorization is granted, the logo must be used in accordance with the terms and conditions laid down, and within the limits established, in the letter of authorization. Under no circumstances, however, may the logo or any of its constituent elements (such as format, proportions, graphic design, colours, etc.) be altered, adapted or modified.


  5.  

    Conference logo

  6. Use of the logo created especially for the 2014 Plenipotentiary Conference (the "Conference") is likewise subject to prior written authorization from the Union's Secretary-General or his representative duly authorized to that effect. Any written request to use the Conference's logo must be duly substantiated (detailed information regarding the reasons for the request, manner in which it is intended to use the logo including details of the supports (electronic, paper, etc.) to be used, and possible use of other logos alongside that of ITU, as well as the precise contact details of the person making the request, etc.) and sent in a timely manner to the Legal Affairs Unit, ITU, Place des Nations, 1211 Geneva 20 (jur@itu.int).



  7. Inasmuch as the ITU logo forms an integral part of the Conference logo, the cases listed in § 3 above in which requests for authorization will not be granted also apply to the Conference logo.

  8. Subject to the foregoing, authorization will, in principle, be granted where the Secretary-General considers that the usage is conducive to achievement of the Conference's mandate or seeks to promote its work.

  9. Where authorization is granted, the logo must be used in accordance with the terms and conditions laid down, and within the limits established, in the letter of authorization. Under no circumstances, however, may the logo or any of its constituent elements (such as format, proportions, graphic design, colours, etc.) be altered, adapted or modified.
