This wide and disparate group of graphical symbols still has to conform to design rules, but in this case, the purely visual representation of the intended image is not always the main criterion. Company organization, management and quality.


Energy and heat transfer engineering The subcommittee experts face a 91862- task to keep up with the continuous flow of new requirements, and are developing a system of electronic voting with, at its heart, an evolving database, originally developed by IEC. The universal language of good, standardized graphical symbols is therefore a strong potential boon for citizens everywhere.

A joint working group between the two organizations has been created for this purpose. Symbols can already be easily seen on their own or as part of signs in all kinds of places – in the home or office; in the car or on the beach; in a factory or airport.


This revised standard was published earlier this year and will soon be joined by its companion, ISOwhich covers methods for testing perceptual quality.

Its coordination isi helps ensure good design and avoid unnecessary proliferation and duplication. The respondents’ task is to judge the comprehensibility of each variant, giving the percentage of people in their country, who they would expect to interpret the symbol correctly.

A final cautionary thought: This page was last edited It is reprinted with permission. It has been a particularly challenging task to create suitable designs supported by a comprehensive information package for places at risk.

ISO/FDIS 9186 Procedures for the development and testing of graphical symbols

Considerable advantages were gained from testing sign designs using the procedures of ISO This ideal is not always possible and guidance is given as to when and how to use supplementary text to assist with understanding, or to give further information. There is a range of conventions for representing different functions and actions, such as movement and force.
