    POLICY

    A. Purpose

    At times, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) receives requests to use its logo, name, or other identifying mark. These requests come from outside vendors, manufacturers of products used by the Laboratory, or external participants in research projects or facilities. These parties may ask to use the Laboratory's name in company news releases, print publications, items for distribution, or to promote events by non-Laboratory-related entities.

    This policy identifies the procedure for requesting use of Berkeley Lab's name or approved versions of the Berkeley Lab logo.

    B. Persons Affected

    This policy applies to all employees who work with outside vendors, publishers, manufacturers, research partners, and others who may want to use Berkeley Lab's name, logo, or other identifying mark for print or publicity purposes.

    C. Exceptions

    None

    D. Policy Statement

    Commercial firms serving Berkeley Lab often request permission to use the name of the Laboratory in promoting their products. Berkeley Lab follows University of California and Department of Energy policies and California state law, which restrict such use. All such requests should be referred to the Deputy Director for Operations.

    Companies that have licensed Berkeley Lab intellectual property such as patented inventions, software, or biological materials sometimes make similar requests. Berkeley Lab license agreements contain specific provisions governing a licensee's use of the Laboratory name. All such requests should be referred to the Innovation and Partnerships Office (IPO).

    E. Roles and Responsibilities

    Managers, supervisors, and employees have the responsibility to adhere to the provisions of this policy.
