UL – Marking
The product safety testing and certification
What is UL – Marking?
It stands for Underwriter Laboratories – Marking. It is a US regulation standard developed for all electrically controlled systems and devices. Therefore, all electrical devices are required to be approved by it before they are marketed. For this purpose, there are several certified and qualified testing laboratories that are responsible for confirming the compliance of devices with the national safety regulations with the help of a ‘mark of conformity’.
The UL – Marking can be used to confirm the compliance of different parts in a larger system or product. This mark of conformity is recognized by thousands of consumers in Canada and the US. There are various types of UL Marks with different meanings and varying significance.
