Many customers are pursuing access to global markets, and UL strives to provide turnkey solutions to help ease this process. These solutions permit UL to manage the entire application process and deliver the desired certifications, marks and regulatory approvals upon successful product testing and factory inspection, streamlining the process for customers. As part of this goal, UL’s wire and cable laboratory in Jakarta, Indonesia has been designated by the National Standardization Agency (BSN) as a Listed Testing Laboratory under ASEAN Sectoral Mutual Recognition Agreement for Electrical and Electronic Equipment (ASEAN EE MRA) as a Conformity Assessment Body for ASEAN member countries.
According to the ASEAN EE MRA, testing undertaken by UL’s laboratory in Jakarta for PVC insulated copper cable in accordance with IEC 60227-3, -4, and -5 will be recognized by the respective ASEAN Member countries. These countries include Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.
“This is an important step for UL to expand our local-for-local services to wire and cable customers for market access to ASEAN member countries,” said L.F. Lai, Vice President and General Manager of UL’s Wire and Cable Division. “Of equal importance is that this step will ultimately benefit the growth of the wire and cable industry in this region”.
