The principles of UL 969 for Labels

CILS have worked very closely with UL over the past few years to get a thorough understanding of the complexities involved when it comes to UL 969 regarding labels. We have created a series of short videos which we hope will be beneficial to our customers and help provide a solid foundation to understanding UL 969 label and label systems categories.

In this first video, we’ll talk about the basics of UL 969 for labels, explaining the differences between PGJI2 (USA), PGJI8 (Canada), PGDQ2 (US) & PGDQ8 (Canada) category codes.

This is a very complicated subject matter and it took us 18 months to master. If you have any questions or need help with your UL labels don’t hesitate to contact us. Our team of specialists will be able to talk you through everything you need know and help find a solution that’s right for you.
