UL certification, many people are familiar but unfamiliar with it. When exporting to the United States, many people have heard of UL certification. However, because UL certification is a non-mandatory certification in the United States, it has no effect on customs clearance, so many sellers will not understand it in depth. In fact, it is difficult for related products to enter the United States without UL certification.
In 2019, Amazon USA conducted a " blood rain " on LED light bulbs, carbon monoxide alarms, in-line lighting fixtures, car chargers, batteries, chargers, USB data cables, and juicer blenders . The reason is that the relevant seller cannot provide the safety certificate ( UL certification) within the specified time.
LED tube bulbs provide UL1993 ,
Carbon monoxide alarm UL2034,
In-line lighting fixtures UL1786 ,
Car charger UL2089 ;
The charger provides UL60950-1 certification;
Mobile phone batteries need to be UL1642 certified,
USB data cable requires UL9990 certification,
Electric kitchen appliances such as juicers need to provide UL982 certification.
Although Amazon has always had certification requirements for electronic products, such a tough approach still makes many sellers panic. So many US Amazon sellers will have a question,
Do I need to do UL certification or do a UL standard test report and submit it to Amazon?
In fact, both are possible. Both the certification issued by the UL agency and the UL standard report produced by the third-party agency can be listed on Amazon. Many people must ask, since both are available, why do you need to spend a lot of money for UL certification? In fact, it is very simple. The certification issued by the UL agency is unique and universal. It is not only used for the Amazon platform, but also has the largest space for use. The UL standard report is also accepted by Amazon because the test standards and requirements are consistent and safe. The purpose of control is completed, but it has certain limitations and cannot be accepted and recognized by all customer groups.
This means that there are two options: test to the UL standard, get a UL report for Amazon
Apply for UL certification, so that the product has the highest degree of recognition and performance

How long is the factory inspection time and validity period of UL certification? UL generally conducts annual inspections four times a year.

Amazon's review of live products * is strict.Amazon's investment manager said , " In order to ensure the safety of consumers, Amazon has always emphasized that all live products need to have relevant certification before they can be sold.
