UL 8802

Outline of Investigation for Germicidal Systems


If you are venturing into the world of UV-C and Germicidal systems, be aware that UL has announced a new Outline of Investigation designed for this very purpose.

UL8802 was developed in accordance with the Federal Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act of 1968, the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 1040, 21 CFR Chapter 1 Subchapter J, Radiological Health.  This OOI will be used along with UL 61010 and UL 1598 and other standards for the safe operation of these systems.

The main purpose of this OOI is to protect subjects in an occupied room from being over exposed to UV and ozone.

The focus of the OOI is to focus on the safeguards required to keep everyone safe. It looks at lockouts and other safety controls required.

Having Trouble getting your project across the Finish Line at your  NRTL?

We are here to help you!

Client A had been working with a NRTL for 15 months. Staff from the USA and Europe had also visited them at their facility multiple times only to be sent construction letter after construction letter. Once they heard from the engineer that the project was in for final review but nope, only to be sent another construction review letter outlining brand new items that would not be accepted.

With the frustration mounting, they Google “Help with NRTL” and found Product Safety Consulting Inc.!

We reviewed the latest two construction letters, went online and ordered a Certified Wiring Harness and various components, contacted the NRTL and presented the changes and reached agreement, flew to Europe and updated the construction, help modify the NRTL draft report, submitted the revised report, photos and illustrations to NRTL and 7 days later we were scheduling the IPI inspection for this brand new client for this NRTL. Total work time was 15 business days.

Give us a Jingle and let us see if we can help you start, continue or better yet Finish that NRTL project!
