Three Quick Facts: UL 969 Labels

UL 969 standard qualifies labels for performance outdoors, across a wide range of temperatures, and resistance against chemicals such as gasoline. It is required in many compliance labeling situations, yet it’s rarely understood. Here are a few things worth knowing:

  1. UL 969 labels are for more than just UL tested products. Testing companies such as ETL, IAPMO, and TUV require labels that meet the standard as well.
  2. Application surface matters. Performance attributes are rated according to what surface the labels are sticking.
  3. Make sure your labels include the core identification–this informs the inspector of their compliance. Lack of core identification is one of the main reasons labels get rejected.
