How to Correctly Reference Your PSA Certified Certification in Written Text

For full information on how to use the PSA Certified brand in prose, these guiding principles will get you started.

  1. PSA Certified is a registered trademark and should use a TM mark on first use.
  2. Your product should be referenced as “PSA Certified Level X”. The level should be written in numerical form, for example PSA Certified Level 1.
  3. You shouldn’t shorten the brand to PSA, or expand PSA to “Platform Security Architecture”.
  4. The PSA Certified trademark is not associated with the Arm brand and does not need Arm branding. However, if you wish to refer to Arm, you can refer to Arm as co-founders of the PSA Certified scheme.
