Hi all,

 

My company is looking to sell a small electrical device into the USA and I wonder what the applicable regulations are that we need to look into, especially any mandatory labeling/ marking information that need to be attached to the product, and other electrical compliance requirements.

 

Links to applicable standards/ regulations would be good, but any help would be greatly appreciated! J

 

More specific question is, apart from the obvious brand, product name and manufacturer details,  what other information do you need on a product label of an electronic device?  Model #? Serial #? Voltage? Wattage? Etc…

 

Cheers!

I would suggest consulting either Bureau Veritas or UL laboratories.  They will be able to make your sure your product has the right certifications and qualifications.

Hi, apologies for the late response. Have emailed UL to enquire :-)
