UL Certification

UL Standards Information

1.UL Standards

UL is the abbreviation of “Underwriters Laboratories Inc.” which is a non-profit organization founded in 1894 in the Unites States, being supported by the U.S. Fire Insurance Association for “testing for public safety.”
This company provides safety maintenance services through research, examination, inspection, certification, follow-up of products, such as electric equipment, fire protection products, gas / oil / chemical products, anti-theft products, etc., in order to protect human life and assets from defective products with risks of causing fire, electrical shocks, thefts and other accidents.
Products certified through their examination are allowed to be applied with acceptance labels issued by the main office of UL. Safety of these certified products is highly valued in the United States. This is the reason why insurance companies, agencies of the federal / state / municipal government, manufacturers, building contractors, etc. strongly require compatibility with the UL standards as a condition for procurement.
Therefore, the products to be shipped to the United States must acquire the UL certification.

Details of UL Acceptance Labels

1.Application of UL acceptance labels to products

UL acceptance labels are the certificate for UL certified products. In fact, the labels are applied to products for delivery in accordance with production amounts.
We attach dedicated shipping tags for each strip length to our UL certified products.

2.Handling of UL acceptance labels

Since UL acceptance labels are evidence which proves the certification authorities accept the compatibility of the products with the UL standards, please be very careful with the following points:
(1) Carefully store the acceptance labels until completion of witnessed examination of electric equipment which use electric wires.
(2) No acceptance labels can be re-issued for our shipped products.
(3) The acceptance labels cannot be applied to other products (than the UL compatible products).
(4) Refer to the right figure for the acceptance labels.
