Underwriters Laboratories (UL) has been recognised as a CTIA authorised test lab (CATL).

As a CATL, UL can test and certify cell-phone-rechargeable battery products and systems to CTIA Battery Certification Program – an essential requirement for selling to telecom service providers in North America.

The CTIA certification is an industry standard but also a requirement set by leading telecom providers for their suppliers.

The CTIA Battery Certification Program verifies the conformance of applicable products, including lithium-ion battery cells and packs, chargers and adapters to IEEE Standard 1725TM 1-2006, Standards for Rechargeable Batteries for Cellular Telephones.

The program can be applied to single products or to combinations of applicable products as a complete system, for example, battery cell, battery pack, charger and host device (mobile phone) together.

In addition to testing, certification also requires an annual inspection of the cell-manufacturing site – a quality audit that will review management controls, process controls, quality systems and technical competence.

A declaration of compliance with CTIA requirements is also required from the applicant.
