Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) entered into a strategic partnership with Luminaire Testing Laboratory, Inc. (LTL), an independent source of photometric test reports. The partnership positions UL as the first NRTL to provide Energy Star testing of LED products.
Through this partnership, UL will be able to test the energy efficiency of LED lighting products through the Department of Energy-sponsored LED Energy Star program, of which LTL has been a part since its inception.
The partnership aims to extend UL's service portfolio in the near future to cover all energy efficiency requirements in North America, including DOE and EPA Energy Star services for the United States, NRCan, and Energy Star services for Canada, future NEMA premium programs in the United States, and CEC California Title 20 and Title 24
