The process of getting a UL label approved can be a long and arduous one. Yet it is important for manufacturers to obtain approval if they want to show the consumer that labeled product is recognized as complying with an Industry performance standard and is deemed safe to use. Specifically, UL Certification is typically directed toward the following main categories:

  • Electrical components
  • Electronic equipment
  • Wire and cable
  • Appliances
  • IT
  • Fire protection and fire suppression equipment
  • Signaling alarms
  • Equipment for use in hazardous locations
