ETL Certification Benefits with Commercial Power Strips
Falconer Electronics, Inc (FEI) manufacturers commercial power strips as well as many other exciting electrical products. Manufacturing safe and superior electrical products has been a key component to the more than 30 years of success at FEI. A valuable resource and trusted partner over the years for FEI has been teaming up with Intertek. Intertek brings FEI a competitive edge by providing compliance, quality and regulatory guidance with its ETL Certification. Energy efficiency, performance, and safety are among the many ETL certification benefits that Intertek offers. Yet, ETL goes beyond testing, inspecting and certifying products. Intertek provides Total Quality Assurance to industries worldwide.
History of ETL Certification
For safety, performance, and energy efficiency testing, Intertek has the expertise to quickly get your electrical and lighting products to market. The history of ETL certification dates back to Thomas Edison in 1896 at the Edison Electric Illuminating Company. The original name was Lamp Testing Bureau which was renamed Electrical Testing Labs. Eventually, Electrical Testing Labs shortened the name to ETL. For well over a century, ETL continues to deliver the legacy of high standards that Thomas Edison instilled from the beginning. The ETL logo demonstrates an independent testing lab approves and qualifies your electrical products. Like the UL mark, ETL shows proof of compliance according to a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL). OSHA created NRTL in 1988. The team at Intertek provides outstanding guidance on efficiency, safety as well as government regulations.
