How does the new UL Mark affect me?

UL not too long ago introduced their first Transcontinental Mark which denotes product compliance with European EN security requirements in addition to the CSA/UL/US Mark for the North American markets.  Mainly, UL might be offering an “worldwide security certification”.  And, this may increasingly affect European security homes like TUV and others.  Here’s what the new worldwide UL mark it appears to be like like:

Though, at first look, this mark appears to be like like a “UL Listed” power provide certification with its encircled UL mark (as used for Exterior Energy Provides), UL-EU confirmed that it additionally applies to stand-alone part power provides like these put in in all digital gear.  Previous to this new mark, the normal “part power provide” UL mark for the US and Canada appeared like this:

Some power provide producers have been reviewing use of UL to display the present C-UL-US mark together with the self-declared CE mark.  The CE mark can be backed up with an IEC60950-1 CB report as documented proof of compliance.

Will probably be fascinating to see how the European check homes (e.g., TUV) react and if CSA responds with their very own version of this new UL mark.
