A link to the QAH discussion of logos might be useful.  If you agree, 
replace the word "here" with "this certification study" (leaving link the 
same).  And append after "here":

".  For a discussion of branding and logos, see also The QA Handbook."

Link "The QA Handbook" to:

http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/NOTE-qa-handbook-20041122/#gp-branding-policy

(Feel free to play with the exact wording so that the whole paragraph flows 
better.)
