UL Certification for Epson ColorWorks printers

What is UL Spec 969 for durable labels?

UL is an independent product safety testing and certification organization that has been testing products and writing standards for more than a century, making it one of the most recognized conformity assessment providers in the world. UL works with adhesive and label suppliers to test and certify marking and labeling systems and materials—specifically ink and substrate combinations—to ensure imperative safety information such as hazards, warnings, cautions, installation instructions, product classifications and electrical ratings, remains permanently affixed to the durable product.
