Underwriters Laboratory, also known as UL, is a global independent safety science company that works with manufacturers to test products and certify them to specific safety standards. UL labels generally fall into one of three general categories:
UL Certifications Marks: Known as the Authorized Label Supplier program, the UL Mark program deals specifically with printing UL Certification Marks on labels. A company must have a PGAA agreement with UL in order to print the Mark.
Performance Safety Labels: Often referred to as UL 969, this program only covers safety-related information labels with specific performance requirements. Labels produced under this category are considered UL Recognized component labels.
Combination Labels: These labels have both the UL Mark and safety information with performance requirements. A label manufacturer, is required to be certified in both the programs above in order to produce these types of labels.
We are proud to say that Coast Label Company has agreements and product category coverage for all three types of UL labels. Please feel free to view a pdf of our UL Printers Agreement or visit the Coast Label Co File No. PGAA.LP1505 directly on the UL website.
