(UL), have resulted in an agreement that streamlines the certification process for electricity manufacturers. As a result, they adopted an expanded Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and concluded the first phase of a program of reciprocal acceptance of electrical components, the first milestone in an agreement reached by the two organizations at the end of last year. These agreements are the result of several months of negotiations between UL and CSA, with the support of NEMA, the Electro Canada Federation (EFC) and major electrical customers. CSA and UL have signed an agreement to develop a reciprocal component acceptance program, which ultimately provides for the acceptance of components used in finished products subject to UL or CSA certification/listung. In accordance with the terms of the agreement, each organization accepts the certification/list of components in finished products by the other organization, provided that each organization can apply its existing component acceptance procedures to components certified by the other organization and only after evaluation and validation of the equivalence of subsequent programs. . . .
