ETL Certification Introduction

ETL refers to ETL Testing Laboratories Inc. ETL's listed products are recognized by the "Authorities Having Jurisdiction" and may be considered "approved".

In most parts of the United States, the approval of electrical products is mandatory.

The ETL laboratory was founded by American inventor Edison in 1896 and enjoys a high reputation in the United States and around the world. Like UL and CSA, ETL can test and issue ETL certification marks according to UL standards or US national standards, and can also test and issue composite certification marks according to UL standards or US national standards and CSA standards or Canadian standards. The lower right "us" indicates that it applies to the United States, and the lower left "c" indicates that it applies to Canada, while having "us" and "c" applies to both countries.

Any electrical, mechanical, or electromechanical product that bears an ETL mark indicates that the product has met the minimum requirements of the generally recognized U.S. and Canadian product safety standards. It has been tested to meet relevant product safety standards; it also represents the consent of the production facility. Receive regular inspections to ensure the consistency of product quality and can be sold to the US and Canadian markets.

ETL also requires that its production site has been inspected, and the applicant agrees to conduct regular follow-up inspections of its factories thereafter to ensure that the product consistently meets this requirement.

ES (Energy Star) Certified

The Energy Star service mark is awarded to certified energy-efficient products, homes, commercial buildings, and industrial plants.

Area served: United States, European Union as well as Canada, Iceland, Japan, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, and Taiwan.

Energy Star (trademarked ENERGY STAR) is a voluntary program launched by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and now managed by the EPA and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect the environment through superior energy efficiency. Energy Star provides simple, credible, and unbiased information that consumers and businesses rely on to make well-informed decisions to save money and reduce emissions. A widely recognized symbol for energy efficiency the Energy Star label can be found on more than 75 different product categories, new homes, commercial buildings, and industrial plants. Thousands of industrial, manufacturing, retailer, commercial, construction, home improvement, utility, state, and local organizations—including more than 40 percent of the Fortune 500—rely on their partnership with Energy Star to deliver cost-saving energy efficiency solutions. Elements of the Energy Star Program have been adopted by the European Union as well as Canada, Iceland, Japan, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, and Taiwan. In the United States, the Energy Star label is also shown on the Energy Guide appliance label of qualifying products.

Prop 65

Proposition 65 is administered by Cal/EPA's California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA).

Proposition 65 regulates substances officially listed by California as having a 1 in 100,000 chance of causing cancer over a 70-year period or birth defects or other reproductive harm in two ways.

The first statutory requirement of Proposition 65 prohibits businesses from knowingly discharging listed substances into drinking water sources, or onto land where the substances can pass into drinking water sources.

The second prohibits businesses from knowingly exposing individuals to listed substances without providing a clear and reasonable warning.

An official list of substances covered by Proposition 65 is maintained and made publicly available.

Chemicals are added to or removed from the official list based on California's analysis of current scientific information. All substances listed show their known risk factors, a unique CAS chemical classification number, the date they were listed, and, if so, whether they have been delisted.


LM 79

Certification IES LM-79 The main test is the optoelectronic performance test. Because some test items require the use of a distributed photometer to complete, the average manufacturer does not have the ability to do a complete report. This test is generally aimed at the entire lamp manufacturer. The main test items are as follows:

Total luminous flux
Luminous efficiency
Light intensity distribution
Correlated color temperature (CCT)
Color Rendering Index (CRI)
Color coordinates (or chromaticity coordinates)
Input AC (or DC) voltage
Input AC (or DC) current
Input power (DC or AC)
Input voltage frequency
Power factor

FCC Certified

The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) was established in 1934 by the Commissioning Act as an independent agency of the U.S. government and is directly accountable to Congress. The FCC coordinates domestic and international communications by controlling radio broadcasting, television, telecommunications, satellites, and cables. Involving over 50 U.S. states, Colombia, and U.S. regions, the FCC's Office of Engineering and Technology is responsible for technical support for the safety of radio and wire communication products related to life and property. Accredited matters. Many radio applications, communications products and digital products are required to be approved by the FCC to enter the U.S. market. The FCC Committee investigates and studies the stages of product safety to find the best way to solve the problem. The FCC also includes radio equipment, aircraft inspections, and so on.

According to the relevant provisions of the United States Federal Communications Regulations (CFR 47), all electronic products entering the United States are required to undergo electromagnetic compatibility certification (except for some products specifically stipulated in the relevant provisions), among which there are three more common certification methods: Certification, DoC, Verification. There is a big difference between the certification methods and procedures of these three products. The different product alternative certification methods have relevant regulations in the FCC. Its certification is less stringent. For these three certifications, the FCC committee also has relevant requirements for each laboratory.

At present, the United States has become China’s second-largest trading partner for several years in a row. The volume of Sino-U.S. trade shows an upward trend year by year, so exports to the United States cannot be underestimated. The rigorous standards for product technology standards and import regulations in the United States are the best in the world. Understanding the rules of market access in the United States will help our products to further open up the US market.

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) - Manages the import and use of radio frequency devices, including computers, fax machines, electronic devices, radio receiving and transmitting equipment, radio-controlled toys, telephones, personal computers, and other products that may harm personal safety. If these products are to be exported to the United States, they must be tested and approved by a government-authorized laboratory according to FCC technical standards. Importers and customs agents are required to declare that each radio frequency device complies with the FCC standard, the FCC license.
