Part of an ongoing series exploring common terms for UL Labels – UL 969: One of the most common references we see in our daily interactions here at Coast Label. A lot of specifications make reference to it, but few people understand what it actually signifies. So what does it mean? This is the designation for the UL standard that covers Marking and Labeling Systems. There are other UL standards out there, each with their own name. For example UL 94 is the Standard for Flammability. The standard is broken out into categories which include the following:
Marking & Labeling Systems
Marking & Labeling Systems – Printing Materials
Category Code Number (CCN)
Labels produced under this standard are considered UL Recognized Components. As such they require special core labels to signify compliance for any UL inspection.
