LED lamps and UL certification

  1. 1. March 2014 LED light bulbs and UL certification
  2. 2. WHAT IS UL CERTIFICATION?
  3. 3. The UL mark ensures a product is safe and brings peace of mind and confidence to you, the consumer. This certification is especially important to business owners, who are legally responsible to protect all employees from harm in the workplace. www.LeapfrogLighting.comMarch 2014 UL mark
  4. 4. The UL mark is assigned by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), a nationally- recognized and independently accredited safety organization that establishes globally respected standards and regulations to safeguard both people and products. UL scrutinizes products through validation, testing, inspecting, and auditing, and also advises and trains companies on how to build safer products. UL headquarters, Northbrook, IL www.LeapfrogLighting.comMarch 2014
  5. 5. DIFFERENT UL MARKS
  6. 6. UL created different UL marks to indicate different types of certification for various electronic products. For example: UL Listing Mark for Canada and the US Most common. “If a product carries this Mark, it means UL found that representative product samples met UL's safety requirements. There are three variations of UL's Listing Mark: one used only in the United States, one used only in Canada and one for both the United States and Canada.”* UL Energy Listed Mark Appears on “air conditioners and furnaces, refrigerators and freezers, dishwashers, washers and dryers, water heaters, cooking equipment, and similar products evaluated to U.S. and Canadian energy efficiency standards.”* UL Functional Safety Mark Normally restricted to products intended to be used in a functional safety application and involves the “evaluation of a safety critical circuit(s) relating to software, hardware, environmental stress factors (such as EMC) and safety lifecycle management processes.”* Source: UL. www.LeapfrogLighting.comMarch 2014
  7. 7. The notion that there are several different UL marks is extremely important for consumers to know, as some products only have components that are UL certified, not the entire end product. Those products, for example, are only allowed to bear a special Recognized Component Mark: Recognized Component Mark www.LeapfrogLighting.comMarch 2014
  8. 8. HOW IS UL CERTIFICATION ACHIEVED?
  9. 9. The UL mark is not a label you can simply purchase and apply to any product— it is only granted one compliance is achieved. Products are typically submitted by the manufacturers and the company name provided to UL must appear on the product if UL compliance is achieved and applicable UL mark applied. www.LeapfrogLighting.comMarch 2014
  10. 10. The process begins by filling out a Request For Information form. For more information, see UL’s “Product submittal process FAQ” on their official website: http://www.ul.com/ www.LeapfrogLighting.comMarch 2014
  11. 11. Before product testing begins, manufacturers must agree to participate in UL’s Follow-Up Services program. This ensures that a product not only complies when initially evaluated, but maintains compliance on an ongoing basis. This involves evaluating samples and even visiting the site where the products are manufactured. For more information, see UL’s “FUStart” resource on their official website: http://www.ul.com/ www.LeapfrogLighting.comMarch 2014
  12. 12. ARE LEAPFROG LIGHTING’S LED LIGHT BULBS UL?
  13. 13. UL tested and evaluated ALL Leapfrog Lighting light bulbs and they were determined to have met all UL requirements. As such, all our LED lamps include the following UL mark: To provide additional peace of mind, we fully participate in the Follow-Up Services program: our products are periodically checked by UL, unannounced, to ensure they continue to comply. www.LeapfrogLighting.comMarch 2014
  14. 14. WHO IS LEAPFROG LIGHTING?
  15. 15. Leapfrog Lighting provides specification-grade LED products for industrial, retail, and commercial applications. We’ve created an innovative LED lighting solution that uses Intelligent Optics to provide architectural quality illumination unrivalled in the industry.
