|The database on Graphical Symbols for Use on Equipment contains the complete set of graphical symbols included in IEC 60417 and ISO 7000. It therefore offers end-users a "one-stop" shop for all such graphical symbols. These International Standards are maintained respectively by IEC/TC 3, subcommittee SC 3C and ISO/TC 145, subcommittee SC 3.
Each graphical symbol is identified by a reference number and contains a title (in English and French), a graphical representation in GIF and/or PNG and vectorized PDF format, and some additional data as applicable. Various search and navigation facilities allow for easy retrieval of graphical symbols.
Customers have the possibility to subscribe to the joint IEC and ISO collection of graphical symbols or to each respective organization's graphical symbols only.
