Effective July 31, 2015
Effective Date (see Schedule below): July 31, 2015
Impact Statement: A review of all Listing Reports is necessary to determine which products comply with new/revised requirements and which products will require re-evaluation. NOTE: Effective immediately, this revised standard will be exclusively used for evaluation of new products unless the Applicant requests in writing that current requirements be used along with their understanding that their listings will be withdrawn on Effective Date noted above, unless the product is found to comply with new/revised requirements.
Overview of Changes: The September 27, 2013 update was administrative in nature (no impact to Certifications). The October 31, 2013 update was to add Section 7, Commercial Electric Cooking Appliances for Outdoor Use. Only appliances for such use will need to be evaluated to this requirement. THIS SUN ONLY AFFECTS APPLIANCES FOR OUTDOOR USE. Specific details of new/revised requirements are found in table below.
It should be noted that the Standards Developing Organization (SDO) did not establish an Effective Date for this added requirement as it was to reflect current process and practice. Intertek had no visibility to this addition and a confirmation needs to be made of current Certifications.
Schedule: So that shipping of products with Listing Marks will not be interrupted, an approximate schedule has been established to ensure Listing Reports are found compliant by Effective Date:
Fees: An initial review of Listing Report (s) will be covered by a direct billing project and will be invoiced at not more than $500 per report.
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 – Please immediately identify any current Listing Reports or products that are no longer active and should be removed from our records.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.
