Labeling Standards

Compliance with US and International Standards is a necessity in today’s marketplace. Our Safety Labels are carefully designed to comply with ISO and ANSI standards. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) have produced standards for safety labeling design and application. ISO produced standards ISO-3864.2 and ISO-7010 and the similar ANSI standard is ANSI-Z535.4.

ISO 3864.2 - Design principles for product safety labels

For equipment being sold in Europe, proper warning labels is required to meet the CE marking requirements. With the concentration of languages in Europe, the preferred format for safety labels is graphic-only.  The international standard which describes the formats and colors is ISO 3864.

ANSI Z535.4 - Product Safety Signs And Labels

For equipment being sold in the United States, using warning labels which comply with the ANSI Z535.4 standard is an important component in minimizing product liability exposure. This standard uses a combination of symbol, signal word, and word message to communicate the hazard.

Keep Your Labels In Compliance.

Safety label standards are continually evolving. The 2001 revision to the ANSI Z535 standard makes the old “OSHA” style labels obsolete.
