What is considered permanent visible signage in regard to Supplier Standard 7?

The supplier should maintain a permanent visible sign(s) in plain view and should post hours of operation. The sign must be visible to the public and posted outside of the facility. If the supplier's place of business is located within a building complex, the sign(s) must be visible at the main entrance and/or lobby area of the building and show the exact location of the supplier within the building. However the hours can be posted at the entrance of the supplier with a separate sign. Permanent Signage including the hours of operation should not be easily removed or detached by weather or a person who does not have a business need to remove it. Taped paper signs are not acceptable. Beneficiaries should be able to locate the supplier and their hours of operation through the use of these permanent signs without help from the supplier or other parties.
