Designing for Compliance to UL 1598: Electric Luminaires

  • Workshop

This workshop covers the fundamental testing requirements, expected safety performance, and recommended installation practices for Electric Luminaires listed under UL 1598 and updated to comply with the 3rd Edition. In addition, the workshop discusses North American electrical installation requirements as defined within the U.S. NEC and Canadian (CEC) codes. This workshop updates and reinforces a class participant’s knowledge of the respective Standard’s requirements, the safety design architecture of electric lighting (luminaire) products and the laboratory testing requirements applied to products listed under this important UL Standard.

Participants will receive a copy of the UL 1598 Standard with their workshop materials ($1,139 USD value).
