2 DEAR CFP CERTIFICANT, Individuals who have met CFP Board s rigorous certification standards are authorized to use the following three certification marks in communications and marketing materials: CFP Certified Financial Planner This Guide to Use of the CFP Certification Marks has been developed to assist you in featuring the marks in print, multimedia and online communications including business cards, letterhead, advertising, presentation materials, personal promotional literature, signage and Web sites. The CFP, Certified Financial Planner and CFP marks may only be used as described in this Guide. The proper usage of the CFP marks is a crucial part of your communications to current and prospective financial planning clients. When properly used, they represent standards of excellence for personal financial planning and demonstrate your commitment to upholding these standards. The CFP marks are not the equivalent of an educational degree, a professional designation, or a title. Instead, the marks represent that you have met the standards required by CFP Board, including completing the education and examination requirements. You are therefore entitled to use the CFP marks in conjunction with your name to demonstrate this accomplishment, so long as you abide by the rules outlined in this Guide. These rules are important to maintaining the value of the CFP marks. Since you worked so hard to achieve the right to use the marks, we expect you will want to protect their integrity. If the CFP marks were used improperly and if CFP Board did not take reasonable action to correct the misuse, trademark protection could be lost. This would mean that CFP Board would not be able to stop persons from using the marks without having first met CFP Board s high standards. This would be detrimental to the public who perceive the CFP marks as indicating that the persons displaying them have met certain standards in education, experience, ethics and examination. CFP Board spends a significant portion of its legal staff s time and budget pursuing misuse and unauthorized use of the CFP marks to ensure the day never arrives where anyone could use them without having first met all the requirements. Please become familiar with this Guide and apply its rules and guidelines when developing collateral pieces that feature the CFP marks. If you need further assistance, or would like CFP Board to review business materials that you are developing that feature the marks, feel free to contact us at or Thank you for your assistance in positioning the CFP certification marks as the recognized standard of excellence for personal financial planning. 2

OPTION D TEXT WITHOUT SYMBOLS (for use when the trademark symbols cannot be created): Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. owns the certification marks CFP(R), Certified Financial Planner (tm) and federally registered CFP (with flame design) in the U.S., which it awards to individuals who successfully complete CFP Board s initial and ongoing certification requirements. OPTION D SPACE LIMITATION ALTERNATIVE (for use when space is limited, i.e. in a newspaper advertisement): Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. owns the certification marks CFP, Certified Financial Planner and CFP in the U.S. DID YOU KNOW?

10 10 SECTION 5 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Q1: HELP! THIS IS ALL SO CONFUSING. HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE FULLY COMPLIED WITH THE REQUIREMENTS? A: You may contact CFP Board s trademark department with any questions, comments or concerns at or They will answer any questions and proof your materials if you desire. Q2: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE AND THE? A: The symbol stands for trademark and the symbol stands for registered trademark. Using the symbol lets others know that CFP Board has adopted the mark and will object to unauthorized or infringing use of the exact or confusingly similar marks in order to protect its rights. Using the has the same function, but also tells others that the mark is registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. It is illegal to use the symbol unless the mark is registered. Q3: HOW DO I MAKE THE OR IN MY WORD DOCUMENT OR ON MY WEB SITE PAGE? A: In a Word document: = Ctrl+Alt+t = Ctrl+Alt+r, then highlight the symbol and press Ctrl+Shift+ + HTML code for a Web site page: = = Q4: WHY IS CFP BOARD SO CONCERNED WITH ENFORCING CORRECT USE OF THE CFP MARKS? A: Enforcement of the CFP marks is consistent with our mission. It is important that the CFP certification marks do not fall into common use. If CFP Board fails to take appropriate steps to prevent generic use of its marks, it could lose its trademark rights, which would mean anyone could say he or she is a CFP, even if they have not met CFP Board s rigorous certification requirements. If the marks no longer stand for the competent and ethical financial planning standards CFP Board has established, then we will be unable to assure the public that persons displaying the CFP marks have in fact met our standards. Q5: WHY MUST I USE THE OR SYMBOLS WHEN OTHER PROFESSIONALS, SUCH AS DOCTORS, LAWYERS AND CPAS, DON T HAVE TO? A: Professionals such as doctors, lawyers and CPAs are governed by state law and earn degrees and titles such as M.D. and J.D. that are granted by many different colleges and universities. By contrast, CFP professionals earn certification of their services solely from CFP Board, and with that, the permission to use the CFP certification marks. If an individual calls him or herself a CPA when he or she is not, the state has jurisdiction to sanction the individual. CFP Board s only jurisdiction over an individual who improperly calls himself a CFP professional is to bring a civil lawsuit based on trademark rights. Proper use of the CFP marks and associated symbols by CFP certificants assists CFP Board in maintaining its rights to the marks and its ability to certify practitioners. Q6: WHY DOESN T CFP BOARD HAVE TO USE THE OR SYMBOLS IN ITS COMPANY NAME? A: Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. (CFP Board) is a company name or trade name, not a trademark, and therefore is not required to be displayed with the or symbols.
11 11 Q7: WHY CAN T I USE THE WORD DESIGNATION IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE MARKS? A: Designation refers to a degree or title awarded to individuals who pass certain education and examination requirements of entities such as universities and associations, thereby attaining a degree. Certification refers to the approval by a certifying entity of certain qualities for specified goods or services offered by individuals or organizations. The requirements for a certification of services, such as financial planning, typically include rigorous education and examination programs. Q8: WHY MUST I ADD A CFP BOARD-APPROVED NOUN TO THE CFP AND CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER MARKS? A: Under the federal trademark act, a certification mark must not be used as a title or degree. In practical terms, the use of the CFP marks as adjectives in connection with one of the approved nouns is appropriate use. As owners of certification marks, CFP Board is required to maintain quality control over the use by its certificants of its proprietary trademarks. As a result, CFP Board has implemented the list of nouns as a way to ensure uniform and proper use of the CFP marks. Q9: MAY I CHOOSE WHICH CFP BOARD-APPROVED NOUN I WISH TO USE? A: Yes. It is entirely the choice of the individual. However, it should be used correctly and according to the rules in this Guide. Q10: DO I HAVE TO USE ALL THREE TRADEMARKS (CFP, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER AND CFP WITH FLAME DESIGN) IN MY BUSINESS MATERIALS? A: No. You may use one, two or all three of the marks as long as you follow the appropriate rules for each mark. Q11: MY PHONE BOOK COMPANY/PUBLICATION DIDN T/WON T ADD THE AFTER THE CFP MARK OR THE AFTER THE CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER MARK, AND THEY DIDN T/WON T FOLLOW MY OTHER DIRECTIONS REGARDING ADDING THE NOUN. WHAT SHOULD I DO? A: CFP Board realizes that some phone companies will not adhere to trademark regulations in their printed materials. You may offer them the alternative of using (R) instead of, and (tm) instead of. Please make a good faith effort to request the publisher follow the trademark guidelines as set forth in this Guide. Q12: WILL I BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THIRD-PARTY TRADEMARK MISUSE? A: CFP Board understands that third-party use of the CFP marks may not be within your control. As a CFP certificant, you have agreed to comply with the rules in this Guide and we ask that you help educate those, like the media, who may use the marks in association with the certification or your name, about the correct use of the marks. CFP Board will not bring a certificant before Professional Review because of third-party marks misuse. Certificants may, however, be sent through the professional review process due to misuse of the CFP marks in their own materials and/or Web sites. Q13: WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON T FOLLOW THE RULES IN THIS GUIDE? A: As a CFP certificant you have agreed to adhere to the rules and regulations set by CFP Board, and following this Guide is a condition of being permitted to display the CFP marks. If for some reason you decide not to follow the rules in this Guide, you will be subject to CFP Board s disciplinary process which may result in the revocation of your certification.
12 12 Q14: HOW DO I USE TRADEMARK SYMBOLS IN MY DOCUMENTS? A: CFP Board understands that trademark symbols do not always translate when sent in messages, so we recommend using the (R) and (tm) alternatives in your s. This way, no matter what program the recipient uses, the message that the marks are protected by trademark law is conveyed. Q15. MAY I SELL ITEMS LIKE HATS OR BRIEFCASES THAT HAVE THE CFP MARKS ON THEM? A: No. CFP certificants may not produce promotional items that display the CFP marks for resale. Q16. MAY I INCLUDE A HYPERLINK TO CFP BOARD S WEB SITE ON MY WEB PAGE? A: Yes. It is important, however, that these links take the user completely out of your site and directly to CFP Board s site. Framing is not allowed.
13 13 SECTION 6 RULES FOR REPRODUCING THE CFP MARK To maintain quality control over the appearance of the CFP mark, CFP Board requires that all reproductions be made from original artwork, be readable, legible and on approved backgrounds, and have consistent use of color. The information below will provide your print vendor the information necessary to create proper reproductions of the mark Original Artwork All reproductions of the CFP mark must be made from original reproduction artwork provided by CFP Board. To obtain positive and reverse reproduction images, download from CFP Board s Web site at www. CFP.net/login, contact us at or us at 6.2. Readability To maintain readability of the registered symbol, three graphic relationships between the CFP mark and the (registered mark) symbol have been developed. Use relationship A when the mark measures greater than 1/2, relationship B when the mark measures between 1/2 and 9/32 and relationship C when the mark measures 1/ Legibility The impact and legibility of the printed CFP mark will be lessened by crowding it with other visual elements. A clear zone surrounding the mark has been established as an area into which no other graphic imagery or other visual elements may enter. As shown below in D, this space is determined by the cap height of CFP, the typographic element of the CFP mark. The one exception to this rule is when the mark is used within text. To ensure optimum legibility of the CFP mark, a minimum reproduction size of 1/4 is recommended (see E). If reduced to a smaller size, the overall legibility and visual impact of the mark may be compromised. If reproduction quality of the mark cannot be guar anteed when reproduced at 1/4, a larger size may be necessary. The marks in the text paragraphs on this page are shown at the minimum 1/4 size. E A B 1/2 9/32 C 1/4 x 1/4 x x 1/2 x x 3/4 x D x 1 x Minimum 1/4 For examples that violate graphic or correct usage standards, see pages 7 and 8.
14 6.4. Approved Backgrounds The positivecfp mark should be used on light colored backgrounds ranging from white to values no darker than 40% of black. The CFP mark should be reversed if used on dark backgrounds from 50%-100% value of black. Use the illustration below as a guide when determining background values. 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% 90% 100% 6.5. Color Options Consistent use of color in the CFP mark is important to establish immediate recognition of individuals certified by CFP Board. The only two-color option for the CFP mark is shown in example A below, PANTONE * 280 Blue for the flame element and black for the CFP and elements. Also shown are other approved one-color options. Printers should refer to the PANTONE color formula guide for an exact color and density match. A B C D POSITIVE TWO-COLOR POSITIVE ONE-COLOR POSITIVE ONE-COLOR POSITIVE ONE-COLOR Flame element prints in Pantone 280 blue, CFP prints in black. Entire mark prints in black. Entire mark prints in Pantone 280 blue. Entire mark prints in any color darker than 50% value of black. The CFP marks shown are examples of reverse applications against colored backgrounds. REVERSE ONE-COLOR Entire mark prints white on a Pantone 280 blue BACKGROUND. REVERSE ONE-COLOR Entire mark prints white on any color darker than 50% value of a black BACKGROUND. *Pantone is a registered trademark of PANTONE Inc. for its color matching system (PMS). 14
