Use of AUSIT Trademark and AUSIT Logo


1.    Definitions
a.    The AUSIT logo refers to the current AUSIT logos in common use on its stationery and website, including but not limited to AUSIT event logos
b.    The name AUSIT includes all wordings which indicate membership or any other affiliation with AUSIT (e.g. “Member of AUSIT”).
2.    Who Can Use the AUSIT Logo and the AUSIT name?
a.    Senior Practitioners
b.    Full Members
c.    Important: AUSIT membership is awarded to the practitioner who has applied for membership, and not for a company for which that practitioner works or which is owned by that practitioner. It must be clear at all times that the AUSIT member is displaying the logo, and not another entity. The name of the practitioner must be part of the logo if there is any potential for confusion, in particular for, but not limited to, the following circumstances:
- the practitioner trades under a trading name (e.g. "Jimmy's Translations")
- the practitioner works for, or owns, a separate legal entity under which translation, interpreting and other work is conducted (e.g. "Jimmy Pty. Ltd.")
AUSIT recommends that the practitioner's name always be included in the logo, and AUSIT may provide customised logos for download and/or hot-linking
