Complying products will be immediately labeled with a distinctive, serialized label per the AHJ requirements. For the U.S., the technical requirements are described in the National Electric Code (NEC) and other applicable requirements specified by the AHJ. In Canada, the technical requirements are described in the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA Model Code SPE-1000 and for medical/lab/x-ray equipment, the applicable parts of the relevant CSA standards.
