There is an blog post over at Coastlabel.com that briefly touches on UL 969. It’s short, but oh so sweet. UL labels can get complicated1, but sometimes knowing a few key details can make a difference. This may not be the definitive list of key terms, but it will most surely get you going:
- UL 969 labels are for more than just UL tested products. Testing companies such as ETL, IAPMO, and TUV require labels that meet the standard as well. [ed. Learn more about these agencies in my post: NRTLs rhymes with Turtles]
- Application surface matters. Performance attributes are rated according to what surface the labels are sticking.
- Make sure your labels include the core identification–this informs the inspector of their compliance. Lack of core identification is one of the main reasons labels get rejected. [ed. I covered UL Recognized core labels here: UL Recognized Core Labels]
