New certification markings recently introduced by CSA International will provide an alternative to the existing CSA markings used for products certified for use in the U.S. market that currently bear the NRTL (Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory) or NRTL/C designation.

Products certified for the U.S. market will bear the CSA mark with the letters US beneath it. Products certified for both the Canadian and U.S. markets will bear the CSA mark with indicator letters C and US. Products tested and certified primarily for the Canadian market will continue to use the CSA mark without indicators. Use of the new markings is not mandatory.

Manufacturers may continue to use the existing NRTL and NRTL/C markings for certified products covered under the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration NRTL program.
