Overview of Changes:

REQUIREMENTS FOR ETLus LISTED DRY-CLEANING EQUIPMENT, FOLLOWING WITHDRAWL OF UL 664

The base standard for evaluation of dry-cleaning equipment for ETLus is the Standard for Motor-Operated Appliances, ANSI/UL 73. ANSI/UL 73 is supplemented by the Standard for Drycleaning Plants ANSI/NFPA 32, as modified.

(Specific details of new/revised requirements are found in table below):

Fees: So that production of products bearing the Listing Mark will not be interrupted, a quote will be issued for the Applicant to work with their local Intertek Lab to determine the necessary test program, sampling requirement and needed construction details and/or updated marking/instruction details.

Client Action Required:

Information – To assist our Engineer with review of your Listing Reports, please submit technical information in response to the new/revised paragraphs noted in the attached or explain why these new/revised requirements do not apply to your product (s).

Current Listings Not Active? – Please immediately identify any current Listing Reports or products that are no longer active and should be removed from our records. We will do this at no charge as long as Intertek is notified in writing prior to the review of your reports.
