The following are the most common types of pages found in UL reports and Follow-Up Service (FUS) procedures.

Authorization page: The first page in UL’s FUS procedure that authorizes use of the UL Mark. The authorization page contains the name, address and corporate identifier of the applicant, listee, and manufacturers, and the UL product category (CCN). Note: This is a system-generated page.

Page heading example:

Addendum to the authorization page: If the volume has more than one manufacturer, the authorization page contains an addendum page. The addendum list all the manufacturers’ corporate identifiers, names, and addresses for the volume. Additionally, for Ultralink volumes, the manufacturer’s factory identifications will also be included on the addendum under each manufacturer. Note: This is a system-generated page.

 

Listing (or Classification ) Mark data page: Contains information regarding procurement, composition, and application of the UL Mark. This is a form document; only the file, volume, and label control number are edited.

Recognized Component Mark data page (not revised): outlines the Recognized Component marking requirements that a component manufacturer is authorized to apply to a component manufactured under UL’s Recognition service. It consists of the Recognized company identification/name and catalog number, model number or other designation. The UL Recognized Component Mark may be used in conjunction with the Recognized marking. This is a form that is not edited, but is linked to the applicable volumes.

Appendix: The portion of UL’s FUS procedure containing instructions for the manufacturer and UL’s field representative concerning specific responsibilities and required tests for products bearing the UL Mark. The appendix also outlines tests to be conducted on FUS samples forwarded to UL’s facilities.

Follow-up inspection instructions (FUIIs): Specific instructions and responsibilities applicable to UL’s FUS program. FUIIs are generally issued when the UL Standard is included in the procedure.
