International Association of Fire Fighters
Thank you for your interest in displaying the International’s logo. All those requesting permission to use the IAFF logo are required to fill out the licensing application, attach the necessary pages and return the paperwork to the IAFF General President for consideration by the Executive Board.
Please know that IAFF affiliates are allowed to use the logo for official purposes without prior approval from the Executive Board. Official purposes are those such as business cards, letterhead and clothing apparel produced for your respective local only. Approval by the Executive Board is necessary, however, for the use of the logo as part of a booster sticker or materials used by locals for fundraising purposes. In addition, telemarketers and other vendors are prohibited from using the logo unless it is significantly different from the IAFF logo and approved by the Executive Board.
All persons, vendors, businesses, IAFF affiliates as specified in paragraph two, and other entities seeking approval for the use of the logo should send in a fully completed request form, accompanied by samples of the product that would bear the IAFF logo, and a letter of support from an IAFF affiliate president. Pursuant to IAFF policy, please be aware that the sample(s) will ordinarily become the property of the IAFF, unless accompanied by a specific request that the sample (s) be returned. In any event, the IAFF does not assume responsibility for lost, damaged, or misdirected samples under any circumstances. Products licensed to display the logo must be union made or when union products are not available, must be made in the United States and Canada.
After the Executive Board grants permission all approved users
will pay an annual licensing fee for use of the IAFF logo. The annual licensing
fee is $200 for IAFF members using the logo for commercial activities and $1,000
for all non-IAFF users. Approved users will also be required to pay a quarterly
royalty fee based on a percentage of gross sales to the IAFF Foundation, as designated by the Executive Board. Royalty fees are
2 percent of gross sales for IAFF members using the logo for commercial
activity and 4 percent of gross sales for all others. The IAFF reserves the
right to inspect and audit, if necessary, any books and records related to the
amounts payable to the IAFF.
