ISO 7001 symbol PI PF 001 - Information

ISO 7001 ("public information symbols") is a standard published by the International Organization for Standardization that defines a set of pictograms and symbols for public information. The latest version, ISO 7001:2007, was published in November 2007.[1] It will be replaced in by ISO/DIS 7001 as part of routine revision process that occurs every 5 years.[2]

The set is the result of extensive testing in several countries and different cultures and have met the criteria for comprehensibility set up by the ISO.[1] Common examples of public information symbols include those representing toilets, car parking, and information, and the International Symbol of Access.
