It is generally applicable to public information symbols in all locations and all sectors where the public has access. ISO 7001:2007 specifies the symbol originals that may be scaled for reproduction and application purposes. The symbols may be used in conjunction with text to improve comprehension.

NOTE: Absence of any reply or comments shall be deemed to be an acceptance of the proposal for adoption and shall constitute an approval vote.

ISO 3864-4:2011
Title:Graphical symbols - Safety colours and safety signs Part 4: Colorimetric and photometric properties of safety sign materials
Scope: ISO 3864-4:2011 establishes the colorimetric and photometric requirements and test methods for the colours of safety signs to be used in workplaces and public areas. The physical requirements that safety signs have to meet are primarily related to daytime colour and normally lit environments. ISO 3864-4:2011 also includes the colorimetric requirements and test methods for safety signs and phosphorescent material which also operate in unlit environments. ISO 3864-4:2011 is applicable to all locations where safety issues related to people need to be addressed. However, it is not applicable to signalling used for guiding rail, road, river, maritime and air traffic and, generally speaking, to those sectors subject to a regulation that may differ.
