CCO Trademark Usage Policy

The CCO Logo, any mark incorporating the CCO Logo, the “NCCCO” acronym, the “CCO” acronym, and certain additional trademarks registered or claimed by CCO (collectively, the “CCO Marks”) are the exclusive property of the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators, Inc. (“CCO”).

CCO encourages the authorized use of the CCO Marks so long as the use makes true, fair, and factual statements and abides by applicable law and this policy. CCO does not charge for the authorized and licensed use of the CCO Marks. However, the CCO Marks may not be used without prior written permission. CCO requires proper acknowledgement and strict compliance with this policy. Any unauthorized use will be grounds for legal action.

Certain uses of the CCO Marks may be approved generally through a separate written agreement with CCO. This includes companies who have signed the Training Provider Agreement and/or the Employer Recognition Program Agreement. Please refer to your individual agreement, as well as this policy, for more details.

For each intended use of the CCO Marks that is not expressly approved in this policy, through a separate written agreement or otherwise, each company, organization, or individual shall be required to submit an CCO Trademark Usage Application and Agreement requesting approval for the intended use.

Except as expressly set forth in this policy, you must receive written permission from CCO for each different/updated use that is not expressly approved and authorized hereunder or in response to a particular Application. For example, a company that wishes to use a CCO Mark on a brochure and a banner must submit two (2) separate applications for each such use.

Each approval and/or authorization to use the CCO Marks is to be deemed a limited, non-transferable, revocable license to use the expressly authorized mark(s) for the approved purpose and manner, subject to the limitations and restrictions set forth in this policy. Any such license does not transfer any right, title, or interest in the CCO Marks.
