How to Display Your Certification Mark


You may display your Certification Mark on any or all of your Company’s promotional material as long as you do not infer your products are certified; it is your management system which has been certified (see TQCSI Rules of Certification).

Always include a description of your certification and, wherever possible, include your Registration Number and the Standard, as shown in the examples.

E-Certificates and Website Links

TQCSI Pantone Colours

Blue (Pantone PMS 285) for all writing and the outline of the world; the tick should be red (Pantone PMS 485) for quality and food safety, green (Pantone Green) for environmental and QHSE, and orange (Pantone 021) for OHS. However, to save on printing costs, we allow the same colour to be used as your Company colour in mono colour documents; other different colours are not allowed.

Small Business Management Codes

The Small Business Management Code is a standard to be used as a guide for businesses who are implementing a management system. The Code may be tailored for quality, environment, safety or food safety. The Code is not intended as a replacement for the ISO Standards. Rather, it is based on the international Standards and is designed to fill a void for those smaller businesses who have no current requirement for ISO 9000/14001/etc, or who do not have the resources to implement and maintain it. However, as businesses grow, the Code is designed to be easily developed into addressing the full ISO Standard.

The Code has been further developed for individual industries on a needs basis determined by the industry itself. In particular, the HACCP Code has been specifically prepared for the food industry in response to growing demands by consumers for verification of the safety of the food they consume. The Code is aimed primarily at small businesses such as food producers, food processors, distributors of food or beverage, restaurants, cafes, hotels, bars and other food and beverage retail outlets. Other Codes have been developed for the SA Government for their Radio Network and others and Packaged Ice Association of Australasia.


A simple, easily managed food safety program which incorporates HACCP and meets all legislative requirements. Can be used by any business in the food industry.

Small Business QA Program

A straight forward code suited to a range of small business wishing to demonstrate a commitment to quality management to clients. This code is suited to service providers, small-scale manufacturers, general retailers and distributors, and can be expanded into a full ISO system if required.

SA GRN - Approved Provider Code

A simple code developed in conjunction with Telstra and the SA Government to qualify providers for the Government Radio Network.


TQCSI's QHSE Code is the first recognised, publicly available standard incorporating quality, health & safety and environmental management system requirements.

Primarily developed for businesses to satisfy pre-qualification requirements of government agencies and major customers (such as the E&P Forum), the Code is based on and complements the international standards for quality (ISO 9001), health & safety (OHSAS 18001) and the environment (ISO 14001).

THE QHSE code was developed after consultation with many industry experts throughout the world and is expected to be translated into various Asian languages.

Published copies of the QHSE Code can be obtained from TQCSI at a cost of AUD25.00 - contact or your local TQCSI office.
