There is no QS9000 'standard' critical characteristic symbol. Download the file FMEA-N.pdf in the pdf_files directory ( /pdf_files ) and look around page 20 or so for some definitions of critical, safety and other characteristics. Also see Appendix C of QS9000 for symbols and explainations.

Each company has it's own symbol for a critical characteristic. Ford, GM, Chrysler and probably your company. The requirement is that you recognize critical characteristics of your customers and that you identify them as appropriate in your business. If you get customer prints with critical characteristics and you 'translate' them to your 'format' and you use bowties as your symbol for a critical characteristic then those they marked should be marked with your 'bowtie' (or whatever). There is no standard which tells you any specific symbol that you must use nor is there any such requirement for a specific symbol.
