UL Standards Testing & Certification

If you are selling your product in the United States, your product must comply with the applicable nationally accepted UL standards. F2 Labs can evaluate and test your product, help you through the UL certification process and enable you to certify your product to the UL requirements through a Nationally Recognized Test Lab (NRTL).

Electrical Product Compliance Testing

F2 Labs offers a full range of compliance testing services. We are fully equipped to test and approve a wide range of electrical products and equipment for organizational and governmental certifications, from battery chargers and lighting equipment to medical electrical equipment and wireless devices. Request a quote today!

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) regulates products in the United States, that are used in the workplace, by stipulating that these products must be suitably third-party safety approved by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory. A manufacturer has the option to select the NRTL of its choice for the testing and certification of their products. Additionally, they can expect that customers/retailers will accept products that have been Listed by any NRTL.

We partner with SGS, who is a Nationally Recognized Test Lab (NRTL) in order to provide our clients with product certification to the UL standards. F2 Labs would perform all certification testing to the UL certification requirements and perform the factory inspections, as well.

United States Certification Process

In the U.S., you have two different options for product certification. They are as follows:

U.S. Field Label Evaluation: This is a customized field certification service performed on a limited number of units at the location of final installation. Products are evaluated to the full requirements of the applicable UL or other standards(s). A Field Label Report and a controlled number of serialized labels bearing the certification mark will be issued for products found compliant to the applicable requirements.

Listing/Certification Evaluation: While the product itself will be evaluated and tested for conformance with the appropriate UL or other standards, the manufacturer must also be able to demonstrate a Quality Control system to assure that all future products will continue to conform. This process includes: an Initial Customer Application/Quality System Review, Initial Factory Inspection and ongoing Quarterly Inspections.

Steps to Product Certification
  • Product Testing and Evaluation: A sample of your product and supporting documentation will be evaluated and tested to the applicable safety standard(s).
  • Initial Factory Inspection: Just prior to the issuance of your first certification an Initial Factory Inspection will be performed. This is done only once.
  • Annual Listing Fees: Annual Listing Fees can vary, please contact us for a quote of these fees.
  • Quarterly Inspections: Quarterly inspections, or follow-up visits, will be performed at each manufacturing site. During these visits the inspector will review, among other things: production line tests, quality procedures and documentation, product revisions, required markings, etc.
  • Fees for the above services: Fees per facility vary depending on the number of product categories being listed, and inspection fees are dependent upon location of the facility.
