IEC/ISO common database for graphical symbols


A common database that makes available all IEC and ISO graphical symbols for use on equipment is now available online. It provides a one-stop shop for all graphical symbols from the IEC 60417 and ISO 7000 standards, providing users with some 3500 symbols through easy-to-use search functions. Users can download the symbols in vectorised PDF format for use in drawing software.

The IEC/ISO database will be updated on an ongoing basis as new symbols are approved for registration. Access to the database is by subscription, sold by the IEC, the ISO and their members. It is primarily intended for end-users in industry who need to include a symbol as part of their products.
