ISO 3864-2 and the Need for a Harmonized System of Product Safety Labels

By Bethany Savage | 28th Sep 2015


The international standard for product safety labels, ISO 3864-2 Graphical symbols – Safety colours and safety signs – Part 2: Design principles for product safety labels, published in 2004, codified a global set of best practice, symbol-based product safety label formats to communicate safety to international audiences.

In the second part of a new podcast series with NEMA, Clarion’s CEO Geoffrey Peckham, and chair of the U.S. TAG to ISO/TC 145 – Graphical Symbols, discusses what triggered the need for the international standard and explains its harmonization with ANSI Z535.4.
