1. UL ratings

UL ratings
Underwriters Laboratories Inc. was established by the American Union of Fire Insurance Underwriters. The purpose of UL is to ensure safety of machines, equipment, and materials and protect human lives and property from fire and other accidents. To that end, UL has conducted numerous tests and extensive research and, as a result, set up UL ratings. Any seller of products in any of the majority of the states of the USA must produce their products according to the UL ratings, have them pass UL-specified safety inspections, and have them listed in UL's registration book.
Therefore, to export and sell any product in the United States, one must in most cases apply for UL-listing.
Additionally, UL is accredited by The Standards Council of Canada (SCC) as both a Certification Organization (CO) and a Testing Organization (TO) and is officially recognized in all provinces and territories throughout Canada. Accordingly, our products can be tested by UL for compliance with Canadian safety standards. Certified products are entitled to display the cUL Mark, which authorizes their use and sale in Canada. If products are deemed to be compliant with both U.S. and Canadian standards, then both the UL Mark and cUL Mark can be displayed or a combination U.S. and Canadian mark (bottom left).
Our fans are certified as satisfying all UL 507 requirements.
2. CSA standards

CSA standards
The Canadian Standards Association (CSA) was set up in response to the advice of the Canadian government.
In Canada, the law prohibits the use and sale of any product other than those approved under CSA in terms of safety. CSA has set up CSA standards as inspection procedures and other requirements to ensure product safety.
Our products are certified as satisfying the CSA standard C22.2 No. 113.
3. EN standards

EN standards
In the EU territory, the harmonization of industrial standards and safety standards of different countries is under way. The unified standards are called Harmonized Standards.

In order for a product to receive a safety marking, the product must be found to conform to TÜV, VDE, or other relevant standard.
