Testing for Consumer Safety
Applied Research Laboratories, Inc. (ARL) is a full service testing agency, independent of any government or manufacturing organization, which tests consumer and commercial products to determine if they meet minimum safety requirements. As a National and International, full service, Testing Laboratory ARL performs testing for compliance with current, nationally recognized standards. Products which comply with applicable standards become eligible for ARL's comprehensive Listing, Labeling and Follow-Up Service program.
Continued listing, labeling and follow-up inspection services are conditional upon the observance of pertinent standards and ARL requirements. Products which comply with the requirements of the pertinent standard will not necessarily be judged eligible if there is a lack of an approved level of quality control or other factors that may impair the level of safety or performance required by ARL for this service.
Products built with materials or forms of construction not contemplated at the time of adoption of the pertinent standard may be examined and tested according to ARL's interpretation of the intent of the requirements. If judged to be adequate, these products may be declared in compliance with the standard.
ARL'S Registered Listing Mark and Label
The manufacturer through written Agreement with ARL, is authorized to apply the registered ARL Listing Mark only to products found eligible for Listing, Labeling and Follow-Up Inspection Services. Generally, the mark is affixed in the form of a non-separable, serialized label, but may also be imprinted or otherwise made a permanent part of the listed product, as circumstances require. A sample ARL Listing Mark (Label) is shown below.
Follow-Up Inspection Services
Follow-up inspection services are designed to assure the public, jurisdictional authorities and other interested parties that the Listed Products which bear the registered ARL Listing Mark (Label) are manufacturing replicas of the products ARL tested and continue to meet qualifying criteria. Factory inspections are conducted periodically by field representatives. From time to time, these field personnel may also acquire products on the open market which are forwarded to ARL for re-evaluation.

Product titles, model and/or catalog numbers are grouped into categories, and arranged within each category by clients’ names. If the client is the manufacturer then ‘Manufacturer” will appear after the client’s name. In cases where a contract manufacturer is used the manufacturer’s name will appear after the client’s information followed by “(manufacturer for )”. In cases where there are private brand distributor(s) of the Listed Product then (Private brand distributor for ) will appear. Each Listing entry is followed by the test report file number. A table of contents listing the categories appears at the beginning of this directory.
Items with a single strikethrough represent canceled or de-listed models for a listed product that are not currently being labeled. An Item with a double strikethrough and the file number is followed by “DELISTED” represents delisted products that are not currently being labeled. However, these products bearing the ARL label may still be found in distribution channels and final installations, and were originally produced and labeled under this service.
Items shown with NRTL after the File number represent products that have been tested (prior to January 27th, 2008) to standards recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory Program.
