Compliance News You Can Use — April 2015

LIGHTFAIR Flashback – Helping companies achieve Certification


An established fountain manufacturer came to us at a previous Lightfair inquiring about their first underwater LED lighting project. LED technology was new to them and presented many unique challenges for their lighting systems. To make matters worse, they were operating under a tight schedule.

Product Safety Consulting was able to quickly help them using our Design For Safety Approval™ process. This process includes a variety of services outlined below.

  • Design Review – From drawings, we can conduct an initial review confirming the required Standard(s), confirming requirements that pertain to your product, providing recommendations on possible non-compliances, getting your design team headed in the right direction.
  • Construction Evaluation – We go through the Standard, paragraph by paragraph, confirming compliance. If non-compliances are found, we provide recommendations on how to bring the product into compliance.
  • Testing – We conduct the testing and confirm compliance. Again, if non-compliances are found, we provide recommendations on how to bring the product into compliance.
  • Submittal Management – We submit on your behalf and manage the product until Certification is issued.

We were able to help this company obtain UL certification quickly and efficiently.

Product Safety Consulting has been helping companies obtain UL, CSA, ETL and CE approvals for more than 26 years.  John Allen, our President and Founder, will be available to provide his compliance expertise and to help answer your technical questions.  We highly recommend setting up an appointment either at our booth or yours so we can set time aside for you.

PSC will be exhibiting at Lightfair 2015 once again: Booth # 4271. Email Alan Gradei to set up a meeting.
