UL combines three standards for certifying measurement, control, lab equipment

In a move that could streamline certifications, Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) has published a new second-edition standard that combines three existing UL standards—UL 61010A for laboratory equipment, UL 61010B for test and measurement equipment, and UL 61016C for process control equipment—into one standard.

In a move that could streamline certifications, Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) has published a new second-edition standard that combines three existing UL standards—UL 61010A for laboratory equipment, UL 61010B for test and measurement equipment, and UL 61016C for process control equipment—into one standard. This new standard, UL 61010-1, Safety Requirements for Electrical Equipment for Measurement, Control and Laboratory Use, Part 1, is based on the current edition of IEC 61010, the international standard governing these types of equipment, and contains minor exceptions for national deviations. UL is an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) member and an accredited standards developer.

With one product submittal to any UL facility, applicants can now obtain a CB Scheme Report and Certificate, which gives them access to the more than 40 countries participating in the CB Scheme, as well as the UL Mark for the U.S. and Canada. Companies no longer need to meet separate guidelines and make multiple product submittals to access these markets.

UL 61010-1 received approval from ANSI upon publication. UL also co-published the standard in the U.S. with the Instrument, Systems, and Automation Society (ISA) and the Canada Standards Association (CSA) International.
