PRINTING UL CERTIFICATION MARKS ON LABELS AND OVERLAYS:

AUTHORIZED LABELS SUPPLIER PROGRAM

MARKING AND LABEL SYSTEMS COMPONENT

UL carefully controls the use of their Registered Certification mark. Upon the successful completion of a UL engineering investigation of a product, UL will authorize a manufacturer to apply their Mark on the product. Companies utilizing UL's "Type R" follow-up service will have their label or overlay layout reviewed and approved by UL.

After receiving UL approval of the layout, labels and overlays may be purchased from an authorized UL label printer. Nelson-Miller is a UL authorized label printer. The construction of the label need not be a recognized component.

CSA International pre-approves labels used on certified equipment which bear safety information and warning messages for end-users. Pre-tested labeling systems are recognized by CSA for different conditions (e.g., indoors, outdoors, etc.) Nelson’s CSA certified processes are identical to the UL Recognized processes. If a CSA certified process is requested, Nelson will add its CSA designated identification mark to the label near the CSA logo.
