UL lighting division signs up LUX-TSI

LUX-TSI, the solid-state lighting product testing laboratory, has signed a preferred partner agreement with UL (Underwriters Laboratories).

The agreement expands UL’s services for lighting product performance and safety certification and support in UK and Northern Europe.

Alberto Uggetti, global vice-president and general manager for HVAC, appliances, lighting and components industries said: ‘The partnership with LUX TSI shows UL’s further commitment to the lighting industry as we continue to offer new services, initiatives and programmes that address and anticipate the evolving needs of our customers.’

The agreement with LUX-TSI is expected to reduce the cost and time to market of new products by providing expert advice and local testing for the UK and northern European markets.

Dr Gareth Jones, CEO of LUX-TSI said: ‘LUX-TSI in partnership with UL is able to provide small- to medium-sized manufacturers with a comprehensive support for pre-compliance testing through to full product certification.’

UL chooses its preferred partners (which are independent contractors of UL) based on service offerings that can provide efficient solutions and enhanced certification packages to customers. Also, UL provides preferred partners with further training, dedicated engineering resources and customer service support.
