  • Quick Tip: Are your UL and CSA labels tested and certified?

Take 1 minute to learn something new about UL and CSA labels.

(Heads up: This info can make your life better.)

Medical research indicates we can “exercise” our brain by learning something new every day. Here’s something about UL and CSA labels that you probably didn’t know!

First, let’s talk about your product. Is it electrical or mechanical? Does it require plumbing or gas? If so, you probably know the Underwriters Laboratories must test and inspect US products to ensure safety in living and work environments. In Canada, this task falls to CSA International.

Here’s that tidbit – something new to “exercise” your brain:

Did you know that UL and CSA labels must be tested and certified?

At Design Mark, we provide quality UL and CSA labels to our customers in the US and Canada.  You may be surprised to learn that these labels have been tested and certified to meet UL and CSA’s stringent standards – just like your products.

What’s more, you may be surprised to learn that not every printing company can create UL and CSA labels. For example, for UL labels, the printer must be registered with the UL Authorized Label Suppliers Program. Design Mark is an Authorized Printer of UL/CSA labels and stickers, which includes authorized use of all registered certification marks.

You might be asking: “How does this make my life better?”

If you’re a manager, engineer or purchasing agent in charge of selecting a vendor – then teaming with that vendor to design, order, and apply UL or CSA labels – you want to get it right the first time. A quality label from a service-minded company like Design Mark means no rework and no headache for your well-exercised brain.

For instance, manufacturers of medical equipment and technology require UL and CSA labels for the products they  Design_Mark_LLC-get your samples_call-to-action-blog supply to hospitals, operating rooms, clinics, and laboratories. As with other industries, labels applied to medical equipment often must endure harsh environmental conditions, withstand maintenance and cleaning, and tolerate exposure to chemical solutions. Plus, labels must meet federal regulations and safety requirements. That’s a lot to ask of a “simple” label!
