A Light in the Lab, Open House for UL’s Frankfurt Lighting Certification Body Test Laboratory

UL’s Frankfurt Lighting laboratory was recently designated as a Certification Body Test Laboratory (CBTL), which means that, along with offering testing and certification services according to UL standards, this lighting laboratory can now offer testing and certification services for lighting products according to IEC standards.

The IEC standards newly included in the expanded scope of the lab are: IEC 60598-1; IEC 60598-2-1; IEC 60598-2-2; IEC 60598-2-3; IEC 60598-2-4; IEC 60598-2-5; IEC 62031; IEC 61347-1; IEC 61347-2-13; IEC 62384.

This is a new, important step to better serving lighting manufacturers in the Deutschland, Austria, and Switzerland (DACH) region. Products will be tested directly at the German laboratory, without the need to ship to other UL labs, and lighting manufacturers will benefit from the guidance of a local, dedicated German-speaking team of UL experts as their products are shepherded through one single certification path.

On September 7th UL’s German lighting lab will host a one day event and open its doors to manufacturers, stakeholders and friends.
