As I sat right here at the finish of March pondering what my April weblog article was going to be about, I had an e mail from one among our gross sales individuals.  Her buyer had bought one among our SWS series of power provides primarily based on our information sheet, and couldn't see the CSA certification mark on the product label, simply the CE, TUV (the triangle) and the UL (acknowledged) marks.
Taking a look at our information sheet although, it clearly claimed the product had CSA 60950.

This prompted the e mail to me!
In 2003, UL & CSA drafted a bi-national settlement to acknowledge one another’s testing and certifications.  UL can now cross certify to CSA 60950 and likewise CSA can certify to UL 60950.  This avoids producers from having to pay and preserve two separate certifications.
If the product was licensed by UL for each international locations it might have this mark (sometimes called “cUL”.

If the product was licensed by CSA for each international locations it might have this mark  
As the SWS power provide has the “cUL” mark, it is licensed to CSA 60950 (or to be totally right CSA C22.2 No. 60950-1-07) and that's said on the UL take a look at report.
