Applied Research Laboratories (ARL) announces its recognition by OSHA as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL)


Boutique testing laboratory with 65 years’ experience now offers NRTL Labeling with faster turnaround times and industry leading customer service.

(MIAMI, FLORIDA, April 25, 2018) The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published a notice announcing that Applied Research Laboratories of South Florida, LLC (ARL) is now classified as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL). With industry leading project management, expedited scheduling and turn-around time, ARL is equipped to provide competitive product evaluations and provide ARL NRTL Listed labeling on client’s HVAC equipment.

As an NRTL, ARL also provides Field Evaluation services covering a wide range of electrical equipment with acceptance from a majority of jurisdictions. Such an evaluation may be needed for electrical products that do not have a certification acceptable to the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), or if certified equipment is modified in some way for a specific application or location.

As a boutique laboratory, ARL can provide the personal service and shorter delivery times that other, larger testing laboratories cannot. ARL can also transfer existing listings from other NRTLs offering its customers an upgraded level of service.

ARL is currently providing quotes for new clients in the HVAC industry.
