14.9.1
With the issuance of the certificate concerning a QM System, the certificate-holder is authorized to use the QM Mark from DGUV Test (for a reproduction of the QM Mark see Annex 2).

14.9.3
The QM Mark may not be used to label individual products.

It must also not be used in conjunction with the manufactured products in a manner that allows the conclusion to be drawn that the products (or services) are also certified. In cases in which there is also a certificate for the products, the product certification may only be identified in other ways (see GS Marks, DGUV Test Marks). Furthermore, the QM Mark may not be used for laboratory test reports, calibrations or inspection reports.

14.9.4
If the QM System of the company as a whole has not been certified, but rather only a division, production area or specific area of the manufacturing site, the QM Mark is to be used only for the certified area. In cases of doubt, the certified area is to be indicated along with the QM Mark.

14.9.5
The QM Mark may be used only together with the name of the certificate-holder.
