With such an enormous demand for energy, it’s more important than ever for electrical power to be distributed in a reliable and efficient way. That’s why low voltage distribution equipment should be tested and certified by an independent third-party. Advancements in smart technologies, however, have made the path to certification extremely complex.
Fortunately, we’re experts when it comes to certification — we’ve been a leader in safety science since 1894 — so our team is equipped and ready to guide you through the process. Our certification for low voltage power distribution products is an easy way to verify that your equipment is compliant with industry regulations — a critical component in gaining market access.
Our experts have a deep understanding of the certification process, which is why we are a leader in conformance, testing and inspection for low voltage distribution equipment. Global regulation bodies and authorities having jurisdiction (AHJ), rely on the UL Mark as the standard for acceptance of distribution equipment in the industrial, commercial and residential markets. In other words, when your products get certified by UL, you’ll have the opportunity to gain access to new customers from around the world.
- Global market access – We’ll help you access more markets by investigating unique regional requirements, while minimizing duplicate tests.
- Speed to market – With evolving technologies and changing market demands, we know how hard it is to manage complex projects and meet deadlines. Our experts will help streamline and accelerate the conformance process by mitigating risk and reducing time to market.
