How we help with UL Label Design Assistance

Oliver StocktonWritten by Oliver Stockton, Managing Director, CILS



We recently worked with a manufacturer of air purifiers who was going through the UL process and needed design assistance to create the label artwork. They also wanted our help to make sure they correctly covered all the aspects needed to comply with the label requirements of UL.

Firstly, we helped the customer establish that the label needed to be a recognised component under UL969 and selected the ideal label from our portfolio of 48 UL approved labels.

We then guided them through the processes of obtaining and having the correct UL Mark approved ready to incorporate into their label design.

Once the correct UL Mark was approved, we offered our artwork services free of charge because they didn’t have any internal design resources. We created the label design for the customer to get ‘sign-off’ from their internal product engineers then they submitted it to UL for final design approval.

As soon as they received the stamped approved artwork from the UL label centre they passed the authorisation to us to proceed to manufacture the label. We now hold this approval on file for all label reorders so that the UL label centre doesn’t need to be involved again unless the label design changes.

The process of obtaining and putting the UL Mark onto your product labels is quite complex and can be time-consuming if the process is not fully understood. We are a PGAA approved label supplier and understand everything you need to know to reproduce the UL Mark onto your labels and can guide you through the process to make it as pain-free as possible.

To conclude, if you need help choosing a durable label, designing a label, and/or need help understanding the UL Mark approval process we will help you, it’s all part of the service.

Whether you are labelling air purifiers, medical devices or anything in between, phone us, email us or fill in a form and a label specialist will help you out.
