The Excellence Mark is given to any building certified as "well prepared" for fire. For the acquisition of the sign, the entitled person of a building is required to apply to the fire station in his area and have his building viewed in light of fire safety. Upon the fire station chief's decision, the Mark is issued as a fire safety certification.
The Excellence Mark can be placed and shown at the entrance, exit or reception of a building. Certified buildings are announced in the Tokyo Fire Department's website.
