UL Certification

Manufacturers are often under the impression that they should make use of Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL), which is a National Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL). UL is a two-pronged organisation: The organisation develops standards and acts as a NRTL.

An Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ’s) can confirm whether a product complies to the requirements for the Canadian and/or US market and this decision is always based on reports from a NRTL. The UL standards are considered as the legislative safety requirements; other NRTL’s can also use these standards to evaluate products. The AHJ’s make no distinction between the different NRTLs, given that all NRTL are accredited organisations. Certification Experts has several partner NRTL’s who are accredited to carry out the conformity procedures for the US market.
