Use of the Navy seal by any party other than the Department of the Navy and the Department of Defense is regulated by 18 United States Code, Part 1, Chapter 47, Section 1017. People who obtain licensing agreements must use the Navy seal only within the terms of those agreements and are prohibited from making false claims regarding endorsement or approval of their merchandise by the Navy.
