Topic: UL Approval of HotTop (6 msgs / 167 lines)
1) From: John Abbott
Site evaluation???? They didn't get anywhere near our plant! We packed up
the computers and shipped them to them along with a MONSTER check. I can
just see some UL tech licking his chops at the chance to fly to Taiwan to do
a site evaluation - all expenses paid.

The question of UL approval effecting the marketing of the HotTop came up,

John,  His reply did have a certain air of self-importance, to me! Dan

Dan / John
It really did especially when you consider tha statement below as 
regards Canadian compliance.
This was a huge issue and the US literally had to force Canada to accept 
UL approval in
place of CSA.  To not even mention CSA is ridiculous - as that is still 
the primary certifier
in Canada.
We always certified everything with CSA and used that in the US rather 
than UL.  It was a
better certification and much quicker and cheaper too.  Although it is 
similar pay a bunch of
money and you can certify damn near anything.
