If you discover that you are going to need UL Recognized Labels, follow the 3 steps below:
- As a new client, you will need to register with UL on their website.
- After you register, you will request a quote from UL for the recognition of your product and you will then be assigned a project Engineer.
- At this time, we recommend that you request a courtesy visit from an Inspector so that you can find out everything you need to know before going into production. This will help you avoid any expensive surprises or production delays.
After it is determined that you need a recognized UL Label, you will want to find a manufacturer that has several UL approved constructions. Having a manufacturer with many different constructions to choose from will allow you to find a product that will meet your needs while cutting costs and saving time. Environment, temperature, and the substrate are all important and a knowledgeable manufacturer can guide you to the best construction. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
When your project is completed, you are ready for your Initial Product Inspection(IPI). This is when the UL Inspector signs off on your product making it a UL Listed (or Certified) Product.
