ETL Intertek

The ETL Mark is proof of product compliance to North American safety standards. Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) and code officials across the US and Canada accept the ETL Listed Mark as proof of product compliance to published industry standards. Intertek is an OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) recognized NRTL (Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory) and is accredited as a Testing Organization and Certification Body by the Standards Council of Canada.

Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL)
As an OSHA Recognized NRTL in the U.S., Intertek is able to test and certify products for its customers. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) is a branch of the U.S. Department of Labor. They are primarily responsible for workplace safety. When OSHA created the NRTL Program in 1988, Intertek (known as “Electrical Testing Laboratories” or “ETL” at the time) was quick to gain recognition and began certifying products on behalf of its worldwide clients in 1989.

Intertek has 13 test laboratories across North America, Europe and Asia that are formally recognized as NRTL sites, plus an additional 31 laboratories that are qualified to test products for United States certification under the umbrella of our headquarter NRTL site in Arlington Heights, IL.
