ETL Certification

As an accredited testing laboratory, we’ve helped thousands of manufacturers complete testing for their products and achieve ETL Listed Mark.

1. ETL certification

ETL stands for Electrical Testing Laboratories, founded by Thomas Edison in 1896 and recognized by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as a NRTL (Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory). With over 100 years of experience, the ETL certification has been widely recognized and enjoys the same high reputation as Underwriters Laboratories (UL). More and more consumers recognize it on products they purchase as a symbol of safety.

Global Fortune 100 companies including General Electric, HP, Hitatchi, IBM, LG, Panasonic, Samsung, Siemens, and Sony rely on Intertek and the ETL certification to get products tested and certified. The Mark is also accepted at all major North American retailers, including The Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Target, JCPenney, Sears, Costco and many others.

Any electrical, mechanical or electromechanical product that bears the ETL certification indicates that it has been tested and meets the relevant industry standards.
