All electrically controlled devices or systems in the USA must be approved. Conformity with national safety regulations is demonstrated by a mark of conformity from a qualified, recognised testing laboratory. The most widely recognised testing laboratory is UL (Underwriters Laboratories). UL conducts tests according to UL standards, which incorporate national standards as an essential component.
The ultimate purpose of these tests is to minimise the risk posed by insurance companies’ liabilities resulting from equipment and the hazards associated with it (electric shock, fire and mechanical injury). The damages awarded by courts in the USA can easily reach levels high enough to threaten the continued existence of manufacturers, sellers and users (companies).
