If the conference is going to be a joint event, can we authorize the other party to use the Department of Commerce seal and/or a bureau logo or emblem on materials it prints to hand out at the conference?
Yes, please contact the General Law Division at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Can we use an outside entity’s logo on materials that we print to hand out at the conference?
It depends on the nature of the outside entity. Generally, we are not authorized to place the logo of a company on government printed materials; however there is a waiver process.
