CERTIFICATIONS

UL continues its research and offers programs to which are certified fire-resistive cables in systems and circuit integrity cables.

The fire-resistive cable manufacturers that have achieved certification under the programs can be viewed by clicking on the links below.

UL 2196 & ULC-S139 CONSENSUS STANDARDS

A bi-national effort between the UL Standards Technical Panel responsible for UL 2196 and the ULC Technical Committee responsible for S139 was initiated in 2012 to perform a comprehensive review of standards and to establish a single, improved bi-national standard for the US and Canada. Task Groups established under the bi-national initiative have completed surveys of fire resistive cabling systems and associated installation practices, and work to establish test method improvements and testing program protocols is currently progressing. It is anticipated that the bi-national standard will be published during the third quarter of 2017.

WHO CAN CODE AUTHORITIES CONTACT FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION?

Code authorities with questions about the code applications for which fire-resistive and circuit integrity cable systems are certified can contact UL’s Senior Regulatory Engineer, Rich Walke, in Northbrook, Il. at Richard.N.Walke@ul.com or +1.847.664.3084.
