Global Market Access Services

As a member of the IECEE’s (IEC System for Conformity Testing and Certification of Electrotechnical Equipment and Components) CB Scheme, UL offers our customers streamlined market access to over 50 countries, which eliminates the need for redundant testing because product certifications issued by one CB scheme member are honored by all other members. Additionally, you can benefit by saving money and time when you use UL as a one-stop-shop for all of your certification needs. Our team is ready to help certify your Ballasts to IEC 61347-2-3, A.C. and/or D.C. Supplied Electronic Control Gear for Fluorescent Lamps, and IEC 61347-2-12, D.C. or A.C. Supplied Electronic Ballasts for Discharge Lamps (Excluding Fluorescent Lamps), as well as any other regional requirements that may be necessary to bring your products into the global market.

EMC and FCC Testing

UL is accredited to conduct EMC/FCC compliance testing to the EMC requirements of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) through the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP – NVLAP lab code 100255-0). UL’s EMC facilities are included in the FCC’s list of testing sites for radio frequency emissions testing. We provide worldwide EMC testing for all lighting products, including FCC Part 15 and FCC Part 18 for the United States; EMC Directive or applicable EN standards for the European Union, Industry Canada (IC), or Standards Council of Canada (SCC) guidelines; and Japanese Voluntary Control Council for Interference (VCCI) requirements.

Performance Testing

LED Drivers are a critical part in the overall lighting system, and they are often considered the weakest link. UL can help validate LED Driver performance against a wide range of industry developed-standards, including:

  • Ballast Efficacy Factor (BEF) Testing
  • Ballast Luminous Efficiency (BLE) Testing
  • Ingress Protection (IP) Testing and Impact Protection (IK)
