Overview
The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®) is an impartial professional organization
that supports the state boards of pharmacy in creating uniform regulations to protect public health.
Through our accreditation, license verification, and testing programs we aim to ensure the public’s
health and safety.
The proper implementation of the visual identity of the NABP e-Advertiser ApprovalCM Program is
essential for promoting, maintaining, and protecting the certification marks and value of the approval.
These guidelines are intended to direct implementation of the e-Advertiser Approval Program visual
brand expressions.
NABP owns the following marks for its e-Advertiser Approval Program (“the Marks”): NABP
E-ADVERTISER APPROVAL PROGRAM and E-ADVERTISER APPROVAL PROGRAM SEAL.
(See page 3 for graphic of the seal.)
These guidelines are for use by approved e-Advertisers, media, and other third parties wishing to
utilize the Marks in promotional, advertising, instructional, educational, or reference materials.
Approved e-Advertisers do not need additional permission to use the Marks unless they wish to use
the Marks outside of the approved uses as listed on page 8 of these guidelines. Media and other third
parties wishing to use the Marks must first obtain the written permission of the NABP executive
director/secretary and, if granted, utilize the Marks in accordance with these guidelines.
Please contact NABP if you observe any abuse or unauthorized use of the Marks.
Terms of Use
Any person or entity using the Marks, in whole or in part, acknowledges that NABP is the sole owner
of the Marks and agrees that it will not interfere with the rights of NABP in the Marks, including
challenging NABP’s use, registration of, or application to register such marks, alone or in combination
with other words, anywhere in the world, and that it will not harm, misuse, or bring into disrepute
the Marks. The goodwill derived from using any of the Marks exclusively inures to the benefit of and
belongs to NABP. Except for the limited right to use as expressly permitted under these guidelines, no
other rights of any kind are granted hereunder, by implication or otherwise.
Your use of the Marks constitutes agreement to be bound to the terms of these guidelines. NABP
reserves the right to take action, including but not limited to, terminating permission to use the Marks
or disqualifying a facility from the e-Advertiser Approval Program, if any use of the Marks does
not conform to these guidelines or the Letter of Agreement, disparages NABP or its programs or
members, infringes on any NABP intellectual property or other right, or violates other applicable law.
These guidelines do not imply or grant permission to use any other mark, including but not limited
to, the NABP logo under any circumstances. Requests for use of any other NABP mark, such as the
NABP logo, must be submitted separately and in writing to the NABP executive director/secretary.
These guidelines do not grant a right to license or convey the Marks to any third party, nor do they
grant a license or right to any other NABP Seal, service mark, trademark, or intellectual property.
NABP reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to terminate or modify permission to display the Marks
at any time. The e-Advertiser Approval Graphic Standards and Guidelines may change or otherwise
be modified without notice.

e-Advertiser Approval Seal – General Guidelines
The e-Advertiser Approval Seal must be used with the certification mark (CM) symbol and may be
used by approved e-Advertiser entities in a variety of printed and electronic materials as a way to
promote the entity’s status as an approved e-Advertiser (see page 8).
The e-Advertiser Approval Seal may also be used on an approved e-Advertiser’s Web site. The Seal
must include the certification mark (CM) symbol and must always be an active link to the e-Advertiser
Approval section of the NABP Web site (www.nabp.net/programs/accreditation/e-advertiserapproval-program). No images, words, or links, other than the individual e-Advertiser Seal, are
permitted in order to link to the site (see page 4).
Media outlets and other non-accredited entities must use the e-Advertiser Approval Seal with the
certification mark (CM) symbol and may use the Seal in conjunction with news/feature articles that
reference the e-Advertiser Approval program. When used by media and other organizations the Seal
should not link to any Web sites. Use of the Seal is dependent on the approval of the NABP executive
director/secretary.

Web Site Use For Approved e-Advertisers
When used online, the e-Advertiser Approval Seal confirms that an entity has been approved by the
NABP e-Advertiser Approval Program. Approved entities are instructed to use the Seal in accordance
with these guidelines and link to the e-Advertiser Approval section of the NABP Web site, allowing
online visitors to verify a wholesale distributor’s trustworthiness.
• Required configuration of the e-Advertiser Approval Seal is to display the Seal on the opening
page of the approved entity’s Web site. A separate dedicated page is an acceptable alternative.
• The approved entity’s Web page title and other trademarks and logos must appear at least as
prominently as the Seal.
• The e-Advertiser Approval Seal must not be displayed in any manner or on any site that
disparages NABP or its members or programs, infringes on any NABP intellectual property or
other rights, or violates any state, federal, or international law.
• Displaying the Seal in a manner that connects it to or implies an affiliation with other pharmacy
verification, certification, or accreditation services is prohibited.
• Any other posting requires express written permission of the NABP executive director/secretary.
The logo cannot be posted on a secure Web page.
• The e-Advertiser Approval Seal should act as a direct link to the e-Advertiser Approval section of
the NABP Web site.
