Safe Use Icons

The provision of appropriate information on how to use products can help guide consumers to get the best performance from products and secure safe use of products. To this end, A.I.S.E. has developed a set of safe use icons to improve and further develop clear messages for consumers on how to use cleaning and maintenance products at home. These messages have been communicated via on-pack labelling and other communication tools since 2004 (with updates in 2011, 2012, 2019 and 2021). 

The icons are freely available to any company placing soaps, detergents or maintenance products on the EU market, provided the use of these icons and messages complies with the legal and technical guidelines outlined below.

The A.I.S.E. Safe Use Icons have been developed primarily for the A.I.S.E. product portfolio (soaps, detergents, maintenance products) for the EU geographical scope.  Consequently, the safe use sentences associated to the icons are available in the languages of the EU. 

With a view to help promote the safe use of products, these icons/sentences may be used outside the EU and outside the A.I.S.E. product portfolio provided they comply with the A.I.S.E. Guidance on application (see above) and the adequate local legal requirements.  No change should be made to the design/sentences and adequate translation should be secured. See full details provided in the A.I.S.E. Guidelines (July 2021).

In all cases, A.I.S.E. retains copyright of the safe use icons/sentences but does not take liability for any misuse of this material.
