Approval of Electrical Equipment

Rule 2-024

The Ontario Electrical Safety Code recognizes certification organizations accredited by the Standards Council of Canada to approve electrical equipment. Only equipment bearing one of the marks or labels shown in the drawings is approved.

Equipment to meet the requirements of the Ontario Electrical Safety Code must be approved to Canadian standards. This is signified by the "C" outside the Entela, ETL, MET, OMNI, QAI, TUV Rheinland and UL marks. The “NRTL/C” shown with one Canadian Standards Association mark, and the “cULus” shown with one Underwriters Laboratories mark, indicate the equipment with those marks is also compliant with United States standards.

A Canadian Standards Association mark with "NRTL" only, and Underwriters Laboratories mark without the “c” at the eight o'clock position, indicates the equipment is compliant with United States standards.

Is true.....

BUT there are alternates to Rule 2-024 (1)(a), (b), (c), (d)
that allow for alternate to sub rule(1)
IE: (2)(a),(b),(c),(d)
and (3) and (4) and (5)

(6) indicates no person shall affix to any electrical equipment an approval label that was not issued for that equipment.
Which wuld be one of the lables as shown in the PDF download in the thread.
