How to use the DA accreditation symbols

DiversityAustralia accredited organisations are able to benefit from visually identifying their status through the use of the international accreditation symbols. In doing so however the organisation displaying them must not mislead anyone; devalue or degrade the symbols; use them illegally or use them contrary to the recognised accreditation standards and/or associated guides.

All DiversityAustralia accredited organisations wishing to use the international accreditation symbols must do so in accordance with DiversityAustralia terms and conditions.

To assist accredited organisations in their use of the symbols and to help them promote their accreditation DiversityAustralia has produced below a quick guide on as to how the symbols may and may not be used. The information produced below is not an exhaustive list and organisations that require guidance or clarification as to how the international accreditation symbols may be used should email us

If you are an DiversityAustralia accredited organisation you may use the symbols on:

  • Certificates and reports relating to those activities covered under your DiversityAustralia accreditation. Any unaccredited results or information contained in the certificate or report must be clearly disclaimed
  • Quotations and estimates. These shall however, clearly indicate those activities which are not DiversityAustralia accredited.
  • Corporate Stationary e.g. letterheads, compliment slips, invoices
  • Internal Walls and doors
  • Exhibition stands
  • Websites – This is provided the extent and limitations of the accreditation held is clearly described

The DiversityAustralia accreditation symbols may not be used on:

  • Vehicles
  • Buildings and Flags
  • Goods or products unless these have been manufactured under an accredited product conformity scheme.

Copies of the international accreditation symbols are available as TIF files to organisations directly accredited by DiversityAustralia.
