Source of UL Certification
The Underwriters Laboratories, origin of the acronym UL, is an organization for the security and certification consultancy that has spread throughout different parts of the world, establishing its offices in more than 46 countries, Spain being one of them.
The UL regulation has a recognized reputation in the management of product safety and certification. Since its founding in 1894, it was dedicated to the safety of electricity, so it carried out analyses of both the risks in this sector, and the need to test the materials used for the construction of buildings.
With this action, he managed to determine and minimize the risks that could be taken. But not in accordance with this, safety standards for electrical appliances and components were considered and developed.
As a progressive institution, Underwriters Laboratories sought to expand its field of action and is currently also dedicated to the analysis of hazardous substances, water quality, food safety, among others.
In addition, it offers safety certification, service training, validation, and testing, as well as counseling, inspections, and audits. As can be seen, their activities are varied and diverse.
What is the UL Certificate?
In the case of electrical safety, MG Electricity performs tests with standard indicators that ensure that the cable sizes are correct, as well as that the devices can handle the amount of current they are claimed to withstand. These procedures themselves represent UL certification.
To acquire the UL certificate, the company concerned undergoes an initial test, which is executed by UL specialists. By complying with all requirements, the certification applicant is authorized to use the UL standard.
Once the procurement is achieved, the following is that the manufacturer or service provider uses the UL standard in the production of the products, components, materials, systems or in our case, of the electrical tables, and that the experts carry out from time to time inspections to verify the compliance of the UL regulatory requirements.
