Talk[edit]

I just did a fairly major edit. The previous version did not jibe with the facts at all where major certification labels or marks are concerned. For instance, there is no such thing as "UL approved", a misnomer that routinely sends chills up UL staff council's spine. I have worked for decades in this field and would point any doubters of my prose to the externally linked pages I added, starting with those of ULC [1] and SCC [2].--Achim 03:36, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

Does the certification mark apply to other than nationally recognized entities such as car manufacturers? "Lexus Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 158.140.1.25 (talkcontribs)

Fair use rationale for Image:Oulogob.svg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Oulogob.svg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Image copyright problem with File:Norma Oficial Mexicana logo.png[edit]

The image File:Norma Oficial Mexicana logo.png is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

Why do the bots keep flagging the trademark images[edit]

Whoever put in the "fair use rational" things for the images (see above) needs to learn the basics of trademark fair use. The images are being used to describe what the marks cover, not to certify this page as being kosher in Mexico. In other words, at least under U.S. law, there is no problem with how they are used. 60.248.2.163 (talk) 06:13, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Not all conformity marks are certification marks[edit]

This page is about certifiation marks, but it should be considered, that the CE marking is not a certification mark. The CE marking is defined in the directives of the European Union, the manufacturer of the product has to mark the products with the marking, after confirming the applicable requirements described in the directives, regulations or standards on the EC declaration of conformity. It is not necessary, to test any CE marked product at independent and accredited test houses and it is not necessary, to certify any CE marked product at any independent and accredited certification institute. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 146.108.200.16 (talk) 09:54, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Clean up tagged material[edit]

The lead section had several dubious statements about certification marks. These had been tagged since 2012 without any clarification or justification; no reliable sources were provided. I have cleaned up this section. Rlsheehan (talk) 13:39, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Removed Integrative Pastoral Medicine[edit]

I've removed the entry for Integrative Pastoral Medicine, as it's primarily an advertisement for a non-accredited, non-scientifically-recognized organization of dubious legal status. Calling something "pastoral medicine" is a legal technique that allows, among other things, non-doctors to claim that any medical advice they give to patients is actually "pastoral" (spiritual guidance) and therefore legal. So far this hasn't held up in courts. (Note that in the US, giving professional medical advice to patients is illegal without a state-issued license.) This is NOT a recognized medical certification or license. The certification doesn't even seem to have published requirements. This particular entry was added by "Rabbishalom", and the CEO of the Integrative Pastoral Medical Association is Dr. Shalomim HaLahawi, who is a rabbi.
