Use of 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 6 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/her 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 jur@itu.int or:

Legal Affairs Unit, ITU
Place des Nations
CH-1211 Geneva 20

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:

• Use in connection with products or commercial services;
• Use in a manner inconsistent with the purposes and goals of the Union;
• Use in a manner that is liable, in the Secretary-General’s view, to damage the Union’s image, reputation, neutrality or intergovernmental character and image of the Plenipotentiary Conference;
• Use for electoral purposes.

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.

WRS-20 Seminar and Best of WRS-20 logos

1. Use of the logo created especially for 2020 World Radiocommunication Seminar (the “Seminar”) 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 Seminar’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 jur@itu.int or:

Legal Affairs Unit, ITU
Place des Nations
CH- 1211 Geneva 20

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

2. 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.

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.
