Introduction to UL certification
UL is English Underwriters Laboratories (Underwriter Laboratories Inc.) - the.UL safety test is the most authoritative, is also engaged in safety testing and identification of the larger non-governmental organizations. It is an independent, non-profit, professional organization for public safety do test. It adopts scientific testing method to study the determination of various materials, devices, products, equipment, construction of life, property damage and the extent of the harm; sure, write, and issue the corresponding standards and help to reduce and prevent the loss of life and property caused by the data, and carry out the truth research business. In a word, it is mainly engaged in product safety certification and management of safety certification business, its ultimate goal is to get the market with a security level of commodities, guaranteed to contribute to people's health and property safety. The product safety certification for the elimination of As an effective means of international trade technical barrier, UL also plays an active role in promoting the development of international trade

Terminology interpretation of UL certification
AL "LISTING", "CLASSIFICATION", "OR RECOGNITION" (multiple column names, or approval)
An application made by an applicant and authorized to establish column names or accreditation services in the name of another party in the name of the applicant
An individual or enterprise engaged in activities with UL in the name of an applicant
APPEALS PROCEDURE (complaint procedure)

If you can not get a satisfactory answer at this level, the customer can appeal to a higher level, until the president.
A part of the detailed rules, which includes the responsibilities of the plant and Site Representatives, and the requirements for the relevant tests. It may also describe the tests carried out for samples sent to the UL
To apply UL to the components of the enterprise or individual product or system testing. In the law, the party will be responsible for testing and tracking services, and the results of the test and all information relating to rights. See also agent.
AUTHORIZATION PAGE (authorization page)
Archive on the front page of inspection service factory inspection order to authorize the following tracking inspection service (class L or class R) and permitted certification mark
CATEGORY CONTROL NUMBER (CCN) (class control number)
UL names, recognition, classification of service products in different categories of character representations. Such as AVLV2 said electronic line; QOWZ portable lamps. In general, XXXX products listed, XXXX2 approved products, XXXX7 products listed Canadian standards, XXXX8 Fu said Canada approved product standards.
A part of the product is required to test its performance and / or structure in addition to the part of the product as a whole, and the components may be column names, approved or non - listed components
CONDITION OF ACCEPTABILITY (applicable condition)
These items included in the approved or non specified parts of the report, but not as representative on site inspection basis. These projects based on the test results, indicating the parts and complete product restrictions and conditions. For example, in a switch in the report, may indicate that the product is in "applicable conditions" only for the following 1A current or below 125C temperature.
CONTROL NUMBER (control number)
One of the four possible components of the UL approval mark is specified by the UL. The control number may vary periodically depending on the product category and the different tracking service types
FACTORY IDENTIFICATION (factory logo)
An identification mark used by a manufacturer who produces the same product in different factories to distinguish which plant is produced at which plant
FACTORY INSPECTION (factory inspection)
UL Services Project
UL product certification, the types of testing services can be divided into column names, accreditation and grading
1) name (LISTED): Generally speaking, the column name applies only to complete product and qualified personnel to replace or install various devices in the field, a variety of products belonging to the UL listing service include: home appliances, medical equipment, computer products, various types of electrical equipment and commercial buildings in the role, such as distribution system, fuse wires, switches and other electrical components. The UL listed products, listing mark can usually be marked on each product. UL listing mark usage.
2) accreditation (Recognized) Accreditation Service: a project of the UL service, the identification of the products only in the UL name, grade or other approved products as components, the use of raw materials. Approved products in the structure is not complete, or in the use of certain restrictions to ensure the expected safety performance. In most cases, approved product tracking service belong to R class. Approved products belonging to the L class electronic line (AVLV2), wire harness processing (ZKLU2), (ZPFW2), aluminum (DVVR2), and the metal flexible tube (DXUZ2). Recognized product requirements with the approval mark.
3) classification (Classification): classification service only to evaluate the specific hazards of products, or other standard except for the implementation of UL standard (including the internationally recognized standards, such as IEC and ISO standards) to evaluate products. Most grade products are not consumers use the product, but the industrial classification mark or commercial use products of.UL marks in the show that the products are restrictions and regulations in a certain range of identification by UL. For example, the industrial use of such chemical solvents, only to evaluate the possible occurrence of achieving the ignition temperature of the fire. The range of certain products and grading services listed the same service, but generally only on a certain product or certain aspects of evaluation, such as in the United States, medical X ray diagnosis instrument of this kind of equipment to comply with the national laws and relevant emission and radiation Beam accuracy is specified, but since UL only uses X ray as a graded product, it is only evaluated in terms of its mechanical, electrical, and other non radiative properties
4) multiple listing, recognition or classification of multiple multiple services: when a UL applicant in the name recognition or classification service, its products to another company in the name of production to meet the needs of sales, can apply for multiple listing, recognition of multiple or multiple grade service, get listed in this case next, another company recognition or classification manufacturers are allowed to use the name in the list of products, but the product of the company name, product code or other features of UL company that can be accepted, must be with the original name recognition or classification of products.
5) "AL" name recognition or classification service: UL if the applicant does not want to use their own name, the name recognition or classification service, he can apply for another firm (usually a retailer or wholesaler) in the name of the application name recognition or classification, which is called "AL" name recognition or classification the multiple listing service. And the difference between multiple recognition or multiple classification, service is the applicant not listed celebrities.
6) system certification service: as a member of the International Accreditation Committee, UL is widely involved in the ISO9000 quality system certification, ISO14000 environmental protection certification, QS9000 automotive industry quality system certification and AS9000 aircraft industry quality system certification services. So far, there are 116 domestic factories to obtain UL certification; 21 of them are ISO9001 85 certification, ISO9002 certification, ISO14001 certification for 1, 9 for the QS9000 certification.
