EcoPort Brand Usage Guidelines

Why is there a brand?

The CTA-2045 standard was created by a technical working group. A brand is needed for easier communication to customers and installers who seek to purchase appliances that comply with the standard. An example of a marketing name related to a technical standard is the well-known marketing name of Wi-Fi vs. its technical standard, IEEE 802.11.

Brand Usage Requirements

To use these marks, organizations must complete product certification as detailed in the Certification Process documentation above.

Uses of the Certification Mark include:

  • Certified products or product packaging.
  • Advertisements, point-of-purchase materials, and other promotional materials when used on or near a certified product, home, or building;
  • Product literature or a Web page that identifies a certified product.
  • Advertisements or promotional materials from utility companies or other organizations that direct consumers to EcoPort branded products in order to satisfy requirements for utility programs.
