What is a UL Approved Label?
UL Recognized Component Labels are labels that have met a permanence of marking criteria via testing (UL 969) to remain affixed to UL end-products permanently. Many UL Listed end-products require warnings, cautions, electrical ratings, installation information, and other types of safety-related information which are permanently affixed to the UL end-product. Label constructions must be suitable under specific Conditions of Acceptability which are outlined in UL 969. What is considered is how well the label construction will permanently adhere to the UL end-product given the application surface, temperature, indoor/outdoor use, and other additional conditions like the presence of cooking oil, gasoline, etc. Note that if the marks are added to safety-related information printed on the label it is called a Combination Label.
UL labels can be very confusing. We can eliminate the confusion and provide you with an approved construction that has been tested with those test methods prescribed in UL969 Marking and Labeling Systems.

Types of Recognized Component Labels
PGDQ2 Marking and Labeling Systems
These compliant UL recognized component labels would be printed at our manufacturing facility and shipped to you. No other printing would be added to these labels.
PGJI2 Marking and Labeling Systems – Printing Materials
These compliant UL recognized component labels receive printing added by you via thermal transfer ribbon. (please note we sell the ribbons which are UL compliant, as well as thermal transfer printers)
This occurs when a UL Certifications Mark is also printed on a Recognized Component Label. So on a Combination Label, there is printed safety-related information and other information as well as the UL Certifications Mark.
