UL’s Marketing Claim Verification Grows in Global Cable and Wire Industry

August 10, 2018

Three additional companies achieve UL Verification for their marketing claims

NORTHBROOK, Ill., July 31, 2018 – With a view to providing confidence and peace of mind to specifiers, purchasers and various stakeholders along the supply chain, more and more companies in the wire and cable industry see the need to have a trusted third-party organization verify their marketing claims related to the performance, functionality or features of products, facilities, processes and systems.

Further to the first marketing claim verification of a robotic cable test process issued to Suzhou Cableplus Technologies, UL has verified three more marketing claims for the following companies:

Company                                                               UL Verified Claim

Hitachi Cable America Inc                                Maintains Category 6 Performance During Water Submersion

Anixter’s Infrastructure Solutions Labs         Structured Cabling Performance Test Processes Verified

Paige Electric Co LP                                           Delivers 1Gbps performance and PoE+ over 200 meters


UL’s Verified Mark demonstrates that UL has Verified the specific marketing claim of these products and process through independent, repeatable, science-based assessments.  UL’s Verification provides objective credibility to the accuracy of the marketing claims that manufacturers use to differentiate their brands from the competition, and enables more confident purchasing decisions.
