    Title: NRTL Program History and Background
    Type: Text Slide
    Content:
    • When first adopted, OSHA regulations gave two examples of approval organizations: Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and Factory Mutual Research Corporation (FMRC)
    • In 1983, OSHA was ordered by a court to remove the specific references to UL and FMRC in a successful lawsuit brought by a private lab
    • In 1988, OSHA revised its regulations to remove the references, and established the NRTL Program to recognize other organizations as NRTLs
