The following is from a UL-O-GRAM...
UL offers comprehensive Canadian and U.S. Certification Services
UL has been providing the most extensive and
accepted safety testing and certification services in the United States
for just about 100 years...services that yield a product marking that
is know as the "American mark of Safety".
For several years, UL has been laying the groundwork
and implementing initiatives to help clients meet their safety testing
and certification needs in Canada.
The Broadest NRTL Coverage Available
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration
(OSHA) has recognized as a nationally recognized testing laboratory for
decades. UL's programs have represented the very definition of a nationally
recognized testing laboratory over this period. UL's OSHA recognition
encompasses the most extensive range of product categories (relating to
nearly 600 product Standards) for testing and investigation at all four
UL locations in the United States and subsidiary locations throughout
the world. This represents the broadest "NRTL" coverage by far.
In addition, in October 1992, the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) granted
UL Canadian Certification Organization (CO) and Testing Organization (TO)
status, which accredits UL to conduct tests and issue certifications to
Canadian National Standards. This means that UL can authorize manufacturers
to label their products with a UL Mark for Canada.
Today, UL will provide all certification services
that are needed for its manufacturing customers to gain product acceptance
and do business in both Canada and the United States.
Because you are a UL client, you may already
be well on your way to receiving product safety certifications from Canada.
UL Clients can take advantage of their existing certifications to receive
product certifications for Canada quickly and efficiently. Our experienced
staff would welcome the opportunity to provide you with the certification
services you need for Canada.
UL will manage the Canadian certification process
for you. Just contact the UL engineer with whom you normally work or a
UL client advisor at one of our addresses.
President and Chief Executive Officer
For your reference, the UL mark that shows a product has been both
tested and approved by UL for the Canadian market is the cUL mark.
