As a global leader, in the field of product safety test and certification, Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL), announced a release for the LED (light-emitting diode) lighting products safety standard ANSI/UL 8750. The edition creates a global platform for the safety standards, and will be able to serve all kinds of LED lighting equipment, and the whole supply chain which uses the LED lighting technology.   
 
"UL8750 provides a much-needed safety standard for manufacturers around across the world, to test the LED products and its related components sold in the United States." A UL lighting business insider said. "The new standard also gives confidence to the consumers when they saw those with UL mark LED products have passed the necessary safety tests." Against the vast Chinese market, the standard release will provide UL LED with whole solution to domestic manufacturers, and help them get successful in North America market on technical basis.
 
As governments promote energy efficiency and clean energy, LED technology application in all kinds of lighting products has become more and more widely, from general lighting, pool lighting to electronic signals and holiday lights. This kind of low energy consumption of the product is gradually changing our lives. According to market research firm Strategies Unlimited, thanks to technology innovation, energy conservation and environmental protection benefit from the market environment, and the global LED market is expected to be more than $5 billion in 2012. The rapid development is also reflected in the Chinese market. The LED industry in China has grown rapidly in the past years, and with China's ministry of science and technology advancing across the country "ten city wan light" semiconductor lighting application engineering, China LED lighting market is expected to enter a new development. However, because the LED technology is often used in new type of high voltage electrical products, we cannot ignore the hidden safety problems, such as electrical appliances overheating, causing electric shock or fire problems. All of these are likely to hinder the LED technology from speeding up and expanding infiltration area.
 
Considering the potential risks, the lack of industry standards becomes a problem to be solved. On this regard, UL convened a lighting industry peak forum, and invited more than one hundred representatives from industry, government, research and testing institutions, discussing the LED technology development and application of lighting design and manufacturing. Thanks to the discussion fruits and over 80 years of experience in the field of security lighting, UL issued three safety standards research outline in January 2007, and basing on these three outlines, it issued UL8750 finally.
