Directive E-108: Global Automotive Parts Trademarks
A message from the Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer of Ford Motor Company
This Directive sets forth the policy for
the entire Ford Motor Company
automotive group and Ford-controlled
automotive affiliates and subsidiaries
for the application of trademarks to
automotive production and service
parts and accessories.
Required Part Markings
:
Ford Trademark
Supplier Site Code
Engineering Part Number
Automotive parts used to produce or service Ford Motor
Company vehicles, or accessories marketed for them,
must have three permanent markings:
Supplier trademark
Supplier trade name
Supplier Part numbers
Prohibited Parts Markings
Regardless of the country of origin, suppliers may not place
these marks on parts*:


Application of Required Marks
Laser etching, ink printing, or other marking methods
which are not integral to the manufacturing process of
the component part shall be avoided.

The three identification marks must be integral to
tooling and a permanent characteristic of automotive
parts
Acceptable Company Trademarks
Refer to Ford Motor Company Engineering CAD & Drafting
Standard E-3 for engineering direction
For common parts shared between two or more primary
vehicle brands, FoMoCo in block letters inside a rectangle
(preferred), or FoMoCo in block letters.
For brand-unique parts that are not common, a primary
vehicle brand trademark (e.g., Ford, Lincoln, Mazda,
Mercury, or Volvo).
Directive E-108 - Exceptions
Other Exceptions
If the size or nature of the part does not permit application of all three required
markings, then the Company trademark has priority followed by the supplier code.
For non-safety related automotive industry standard parts that are readily
available for purchase in the marketplace as-is from competing sources and are
not branded for any vehicle manufacturer (e.g., tire valve stems, light bulbs, some
fasteners):
Supplier marks are allowed.
A Company trademark, engineering part number, and supplier code are
preferred.
For black box parts that are fully engineered and assembled by a supplier that
are also used by multiple vehicle manufacturers without modification:
No supplier marks are preferred, but allowed if not customer-visible when
installed.
A permanent, secure label with a Company trademark, engineering part
number, and supplier code must be affixed to the part.
Compliance with this Directive is required unless a part fully meets an exception
defined herein or a Parts Trademark Exemption Request has been submitted to
and approved in advance by the respective brands Parts Brand Protection Group,
or successor process approved by FGTL, (refer to https://web.purinfo.ford.com).

A non-compliant part requires an approved trademark
exemption.

Exemption requests will be made online, Q-1 2009

Exemption request evaluation and processing may take
up to 2-3 weeks

(System will eventually feature a design guide option for base part
