cTUVus Mark (CU-Certificate)
Approval for the North American Market
This test mark, also referred to as the "cTUVus mark," serves as proof of compliance with the Canadian national standards adopted by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) and US national standards.
Provincial Regulators across Canada and U.S. Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) recognize the cTUVus mark as proof of product compliance to published national standards and code requirements. Retail buyers accept it on products they're sourcing. Consumers recognize it on products they purchase as a symbol of safety.
It shows that a product has been tested and certified by an independent accredited third party laboratory.
TÜV Rheinland tests a product sample and conducts repeat factory inspections to assure continued compliance. The validity of the certificate does not expire unless the standard(s) expire or the client cancels it. Certified products may be labeled with a test mark.
