Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Introduces New LED Package Component Recognition Program

UL is committed to advancing and innovating safety, providing certainty to more people, businesses and governments. As a technical leader in Solid State and LED Lighting technologies, UL has created a Component Recognition program for LED packages under the Category Control Number (CCN) OOQL2 (LED Packages – Component). A parallel category, OOQL8, provides certification for Canada.

Evaluation for LED Packages will be performed in accordance with UL 8750, 1st Edition- Standard for Light Emitting Diode (LED) Equipment For Use In Lighting Products. For Canada, additional considerations are made for any applicable requirements of the Canadian Electrical Code and C22.2 No. 250.0-08.

Certifications under this program will carry value-added information regarding the characteristics of LED package as related to compliance with UL 8750. This information will provide LED package producers with a highly credible marketing channel, while concurrently providing LED equipment assemblers with an easily searchable on-line database of pre-certified components.

To learn more about this program please contact UL by visiting us on the web at www.ul.com/lighting.
