Recorded Webinar - Polymeric Materials – Direct Support Requirements


UL Knowledge Services together with the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) is pleased to bring you a webinar on Polymeric Materials - Direct Support.  The move to harmonized standards sometimes requires products to be evaluated to multiple standards while the harmonization and acceptance process is ongoing. How do you identify the necessary requirements, and minimize the amount of required testing? UL, the industry leader in standards development, is available to help you through your compliance process. Ensure your low-voltage control gear is compliant with applicable direct support requirements. Come away from our recorded webinar with a deeper and increased knowledge of how to design and test your motor control products to comply with UL 508, UL 60947-1 and 60947-4-1A.

NOTE:  After you complete your online purchase, an email will be sent to the address you provide with instructions on how to access the recorded webinar.
