Obtaining an ETL Certification benefits all parties involved. The list includes the manufacturer, distributors, retailers as well as the end user or consumer.

History of ETL Certification
Intertek delivers the expertise to quickly get your electrical and lighting products to market. They ensure the safety, performance, and energy efficiency for products enduring their rigorous testing measures.
The history of ETL certification dates back to Thomas Edison. In 1896, Edison began Intertek at the Edison Electric Illuminating Company. The original name was the Lamp Testing Bureau. It was then renamed Electrical Testing Labs.
Eventually, Electrical Testing Labs shortened the name to ETL.
For well over a century, ETL continues to deliver Edison’s legacy of high standards. The ETL logo represents how 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 valuable guidance on efficiency and safety as well as government regulations.
