What would be the use of immortality to a person who cannot use well a half an hour? - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Product Consulting, CSA Mark
 
  1. What is CSA marking?
    • CSA marks mean a product has been tested and meets applicable standards for safety and/or performance, including the applicable standards written or administered by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Underwriters Laboratories (UL), Canadian Standards Association (CSA), National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), and others.
    • CSA is a North American leader in product certification, with a respected history dating back to 1919.
    • CSA International is accredited in the U.S. by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL), and in Canada by the Standards Council of Canada (SC
    • CSA works closely with the International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI), the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI), Health Canada, provincial regulators, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to promote standards for consumer safety in North America and around the world.
    • Thousands of companies rely on CSA International for product testing for the U.S. and Canada-including American Water Heater, Apple, CFM Majestic, Delta Faucet, GE, Hewlett-Packard, Hubbell Lighting, Hobart, IBM, Intermatic, Lennox Industries, Mitsubishi, Moen, Sanyo, Whirlpool, Wirsbo, and others.
    • CSA field representatives conduct more than 50,000 factory visits each year, worldwide, to ensure that CSA-certified products continue to meet the applicable standards.
    • CSA marks are accepted by inspectors in the occupation health and safety, electrical, gas, building, plumbing and many other fields in the U.S. and Canada

  2. Why CSA marking?
    • Certification marks offer peace of mind to retailers, product specifiers, regulators, and consumers alike. The CSA mark shows that a product has been independently tested and certified to meet recognized standards for safety or performance
    • In some jurisdictions-such as New York City, Los Angeles (City and County), Washington, Oregon and North Carolina-certification marks are mandatory; in other jurisdictions these marks may be voluntary. But in either case it makes good sense to look for a reputable certification mark on the products you buy, sell, and specify-especially in today's business climate where independent verification is an increasing concern.
    • Standards help to ensure that products and services live up to your expectations. In many cases they define safety and quality requirements; in some cases they focus on efficiency or environmental practices.
    • For manufacturers, standards help to lower production costs. They promote interconnectivity and harmonization among products and components, and help open doors to new markets. For consumers, this means a wider selection of goods and services and a more competitive marketplace. It also means greater convenience and consumer confidence.
