Underwriters Laboratories (UL) has been recognized as a CTIA Authorized Test Lab (CATL).

 

As a CATL, UL can test and certify cell phone rechargeable battery products and systems to CTIA Battery Certification Program, deemed an essential requirement for selling to telecom service providers in North America.

 

CTIA – the Wireless Association is an international non-profit membership association founded in 1984 to represent all sectors of wireless communications.

 

The association said in a release that the certification is an industry standard, but also a requirement set by leading telecom providers for their suppliers.

 

The program can be applied to single products or to combinations of applicable products as a complete system, for example, battery cell, battery pack, charger and host device (mobile phone) together.
