UL safety test of America's most authoritative, but also engage in safety testing and identification of large private institutions. It is an independent, non-profit, do testing for public safety professional organizations. It uses scientific testing methods to study identified a variety of materials, devices, products, equipment, construction of life, property damage and whether the extent of harm; determined to write, issue the appropriate standards and help reduce and prevent life loss of property information, while carrying out the facts research business. In short, it is mainly engaged in product safety certification and safety certificate to operate the business, with the ultimate aim is to market a considerable level of product safety for human health and property is guaranteed to contribute. Product safety certification as to eliminate technical barriers to international trade an effective means, UL, to promote the development of international trade also played an active role.
  UL was founded in 1894, the initial phase of UL Fire Lord in the insurance sector by providing funds to maintain the action until 1916, UL was completely self-sustaining. After nearly a century of development, UL has become a world-known certification body, its own set of strict management system of the organization, standards development and product certification procedures. UL by a security experts, government officials, consumers, education, utilities, insurance and standards department council composed of representatives of management and daily work by the president, vice president handling.

5. product testing how to get started?
Once UL get all the data you provide, UL can decide which department to test the product. UL's engineering department will: Develop test plans, provide an estimate of the cost of testing, roughly the end of the test time to send the application form. At this time, if you have any period of time, you should notify the UL so that it is arranged to be considered when testing time. Once you return the application form and provide a corresponding advance, and UL engineers received the corresponding test samples, UL engineers can begin to really test your product.

6. What happens after the test?
Once the product end of the test, your project engineer will tell you whether the product meets UL requirements. For products that meet the UL requirements, project engineer test data based on a formal written report. Test data will also be used to track service and as a fundamental part of tracking service rules. Tracking service rules is a detailed description of the testing by UL in accordance with UL requirements the product structure document. UL field representative will use this document as a guide to implement at the factory periodic UL product testing. In UL engineers will test report sent to you, you must agree to participate in UL's Follow-Up Services program. You must sign and return the track inspection reports to indicate that participate in the program. Typically, this document will be sent in a few days after the application form sent.

The UL Listed products can usually be marked on each product the UL Listing Mark. Listed Mark usage.
2) recognition (Recognized): UL accreditation service is a service project, and its products can only be identified in the UL Listing, Classification, or other approved products as components, raw materials used. Approved products in the structure is incomplete, or have certain restrictions on the use of in order to guarantee the achievement of the expected safety performance. In most cases, the approved product tracking services belong R classes. Category L recognition products are electronic line (AVLV2), processing wire (ZKLU2), harness (ZPFW2), aluminum (DVVR2), and metal flexible tube (DXUZ2). Approved product requirements with approval mark.
3) classification (Classification): grading service only product-specific hazard evaluation, or for the implementation of UL standards other than the standard (including the internationally recognized standards, such as IEC and ISO standards, etc.) of the product were evaluated. Generally most consumer grade products are not used in products, but industrial or commercial use of the product. The Classification Mark UL mark indicates that the product is identified by UL in certain conditions and restrictions specified range. For example, the solvent used in industry for such chemicals, only reaches its ignition temperature of a fire that may occur when the range evaluated. Classification of certain products and services serving the same column names, but generally only one aspect of the product or to evaluate certain aspects, such as in the United States, medical X-ray diagnostic apparatus such equipment to the country to comply with U.S. laws and relevant radiated emission and beam flow accuracy requirement, but because only the X-rays as UL classified products, only evaluate its mechanical properties, electrical properties, and other non-radiation performance in these areas.
4) Multiple column names, or multi-tiered services multiple recognition: When an applicant in obtaining UL Listed above, approval or grading service, and its products on behalf of another company to produce to meet the needs of sales can apply Multiple column names, multiple or multi-tiered services recognized, in this case, to get the column name, approval or grading is allowed to use the manufacturer's product list in another company's name, but the product in addition to the company code, product code or UL Company considers acceptable for other characteristics, must be with the original column name, approval or grading produce consistent products.
5) "AL" column name recognition or grading service: If UL applicant does not intend to use your company's name to obtain the column name, approval or grading service, he can apply with another firm (usually a retailer or wholesaler) in the name of Application for inclusion, recognition or classification, that is called "AL" column name recognition or grading services. With multiple column names, multiple or multi-tiered services recognized the difference between the applicant is not a column in its celebrity.
6) System Certification Services: As a member of the International Accreditation Board, UL extensively involved ISO9000 quality system certification, ISO14000 environmental certification, QS9000 automotive quality system certification and AS9000 aircraft industry quality system certification services.
