Every Bulb Daddy product is certified, guaranteeing the highest quality product available.
Here at Bulb Daddy, we're proud of the certifications our products have earned, guaranteeing our products are not only the highest quality possible, but also noticeably make a difference in the world we live in. Ranging from energy saving, to sustainability and safety, here's a rundown of what the above symbols actually mean, why you should care, and how they impact Bulb Daddy products. These symbols are more than just an accent mark to add to our products – they are proof of our continued commitment to innovation, excellence, and making the world a better and more sustainable place.
UL Mark (UL Listed & cUL Listed): The Underwriters Laboratories' UL symbol means the product, after a series of testing, meets UL's nationally recognized Standards of Safety. UL is a non-profit organization dedicated to public safety and Bulb Daddy is proud almost all of our products meet their stringent testing and safety standards.
ETL Listed: Intertek's ETL Listed symbol is proof the product has been independently tested and meets the applicable published standard. The ETL mark shows the product's compliance to North American safety standards. Intertek is one of the world's largest Testing, Inspection and Certification companies and Bulb Daddy proudly displays the ETL mark on our products that meet their demanding testing standards.
FCC Declaration of Conformity: The FCC mark is a certification mark used on electronic products manufactured or sold in the United States which certifies that the electromagnetic interference from the device is under the limits approved by the Federal Communications Commission. All Bulb Daddy products carry the FCC mark.
Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Compliant: RoHS Compliant means the product is lead-free and restricts the use of six hazardous materials often found in electrical products (Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Hexavalent Chromium, Polybrominated Biphenyls, and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers). We're excited to feature many products that are RoHS Compliant, helping build a more sustainable future.
ENERGY STAR: If you see the ENERGY STAR mark on the packaging of any product, you can have peace of mind that what you’re purchasing has been proven to save energy and help the environment. Energy Star is a trusted government-backed symbol and was created to reduce greenhouse emissions and other pollutants caused by the inefficient use of energy, all while ensuring product quality and energy savings at no compromise on quality.
Design Lights Consortium (DLC) Listed: The DesignLights Consortium promotes quality, performance and energy efficient commercial sector lighting solutions through collaboration among its federal, regional, state, utility, and energy efficiency program members, luminaire manufacturers, lighting designers, and other industry stakeholders throughout the US and Canada. The DLC listing grants consumers access to rebates through their local energy supplier. Almost all Bulb Daddy products are DLC listed and approved.
LED Lighting Facts Program Partner: The LED Lighting Facts label further cements Bulb Daddy's commitment to supporting improvement in the quality of LED products. The label was created to promote the accurate and consistent reporting of LED product performance claims and requires important information to be presented in an easy-to-read format, much like Nutrition Labels on food products. All ENERGY STAR marked products also carry the LED Lighting Facts label, clearly outlining the product's specifications.
