Testing and evaluation process
During the evaluation process, UL tests for typical conditions described in the standards to confirm that risks of electric shock and fire do not occur at any point. We test to confirm that in case of an equipment fault condition, there is no increase in the risk of electric shock, fire or harm to the user, protecting you and your customer.
