BHCOE Accreditation Badge & Logo Usage Guidelines
The BHCOE Accreditation badge distinguishes the BHCOE Accredited companies from others in the marketplace and assures customers that these companies adhere to the BHCOE’s Standards of Excellence for Applied Behavior Analysis Services. As a benefit of accreditation, the BHCOE Accreditation badge can be proudly displayed on promotional materials to help connect members across the industry worldwide and create new domestic and international business opportunities and relationships.
Companies that BHCOE does not accredit and organizations that have allowed their accreditation to lapse or expire, as well as those that have chosen to terminate accreditation, forfeit the right to use and display the BHCOE Accreditation Badge. BHCOE’s Accreditation Badge is a benefit for accredited organizations that are in good standing only.
The badge must indicate:
1) Accreditation Year (e.g., 2020 or 2021)
2) Accreditation Level (e.g., 1–3 Year Accreditation, Preliminary Accreditation)
In addition, the organization should denote the specific states accredited in any marketing materials if operating in more than one state.
The BHCOE Accreditation Badge does imply the following:
- The user is a BHCOE Accredited organization and in good standing
The BHCOE Accreditation Badge does not imply any of the following:
- BHCOE has approved the company’s materials or representations used for sales, advertising or other promotional efforts
- Any statements made to customers or the general public are truthful and accurate
Unapproved Use of the Member Logo and/or Badge
In the event that these guidelines are violated, BHCOE retains the right to direct the member to cease use of the mark, and may sue to enjoin misuse by members and/or nonmembers and to recover actual and punitive damages.
