Codes, Standards and Listings - Who requires what, and why

February 25th, 2013  Dinner Meeting

John Taecker of Underwriters Laboratories

Topic: Codes, Standards and Listings - Who requires what, and why
There are many installation codes and product testing standards that apply to products. How can you determine what codes and standards effect your product? What reliable resources are available? Does the installation code influence the testing standard, or does the standard influence the code? How are codes and standards developed, and are there any opportunities to provide input? What products are required to be Listed? Why are the products required to be Listed? Learn who requires products to be certified by a third-party agency, what requirements are used, how a product is certified, and where information about certifications can be found. Discussion will include both the safety requirements, but also the new requirements under development for sustainable ("green") buildings and energy efficiency.
