scope:

Three symbols are covered in this document. The first indicates that an electrical or electronic device or assembly is susceptible to damage from an ESD event if not properly handled. The second indicates that the material or product on which the symbol is displayed is intended to provide some level of protection to ESD susceptible devices or assemblies. The third indicates the location of an ESD common point ground terminal or connection point.

The application of these ESD symbols on products is at the discretion of the supplier and does not constitute or imply a specific level of product performance

Purpose

The purpose of this document is to standardize commonly available and in-use symbols and to clarify the meaning of each of these symbols.

The correct usage of symbols will eliminate confusion between symbols that indicate that an item or material is ESD susceptible and those that indicate that an item is designed to afford some degree of ESD protection. This symbol standard is developed in accordance with international graphical guidelines and standards.
