INTRODUCTION FOR MACHINERY IMPORT DIRECTIVES – UL MARKING AND LABELING SYSTEMS

The aim of these 2 days Machinery Directive (Machines Safety Standards) on UL marking and labeling systems training for electrical products and equipment is to be marked with specific safety-related information and meet permanency of marking requirements. These markings can include electrical ratings, use instructions, warnings regarding potential safety hazards, and cautionary markings. Compliance with permanency of marking requirements helps ensure that the labels will adhere to the application surface, and that the text will remain legible for the product’s intended use in compliance with the UL Machine Safety Standards Directive.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVE

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Know what is UL directives
  • What Are UL Marking and Labeling Systems?
  • Know UL Audit and Certification labs in Asia.
  • Know the procedure for authenticated UL certification number versus Fake certifications numbers from UL reps.
  • Clear understanding of UL requirement technical document machineries safety.
  • Understand the mechanical and electrical risk assessment and safety requirement.
  • Know what is required in UL compliance in line with UL directives for customs clearance
  • Understand in managing the UL marking and labelling system process and flow.
  • Identify the correct ANSI UL standards for industry safety practices.
  • Identify, estimate and evaluate risks in machineries, tools and equipment.

Know the process in getting UL certified by ANSI standards for export

 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Engineers, Technicians, Supervisors, Designers, Project leads.
