UL International New Zealand Ltd operates as a CB Test Laboratory (CBTL) from its Auckland facility.
In its operation as a CBTL, UL International New Zealand Ltd works in conjunction with National Certifying Body (NCB) UL DEMKO in Denmark for product categories HOUS (household appliances).
The CB Scheme is administered by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for the international recognition of electrical equipment test results.
The CB Scheme is based on the principle of mutual recognition and acceptance of reports; and CB Test Reports and their accompanying CB Certificates are accepted in more than 40 countries worldwide.
Manufacturers accessing multiple markets who use the CB Scheme as the basis of their product testing philosophy stand to gain significant savings in cost, time and effort. The principle is one test for several markets. In practice additional testing is often required, but significantly less than if each market is addressed separately.
