What is ETL?

ETL is the abbreviation of Electrical Testing Laboratories, it is currently a division of Intertek Testing Laboratories, and it is one of the fastest growing safety certification servicing the U.S. and Canada. ETL doesn’t publish their own safety standards, instead, they tests products to the standards published by other NRTLs like UL. This means products are held to the same standards as UL and is also recognized by OSHA.

ETL vs UL vs CSA

UL is the abbreviation of Underwriters Laboratories, it is a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) recognized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that test products for established, self-published safety standards. UL is the most well-known listing and is used all over the globe. A product can be UL Listed or Recognized. UL Listed is the most common UL certification and means samples of the product have been tested and determined to meet the necessary safety standards. UL Recognized indicates parts of a product that are designed to be part of a whole have been tested and approved for that particular use. UL company does 2 different things: 1) establishes safety standards for products; 2) acts as an independent testing agency that make sure that these products meet these standards.


CAS formerly called the Canadian Standards Association, is an NRTL that primarily serves the U.S. and Canada. This listing tests products based on standards set by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), UL, and NSF and is widely regarded as a suitable substitute to UL and ETL listings.


Except for the body that issues the certificate, there is absolutely no difference between UL or ETL or CSA listing, because all of them use the same UL standards. So you can treat the ETL Listed Mark as an alternative to the CSA and UL marks. For Forrinx doorbells, the ETL certificate is based on UL 62368-1:2014 Ed.2 and CSA C22.2#62368-1:2014 Ed.2 standards.
