					What do the symbols on the
back of your gadget?




On the reverse side of the majority of gadgets, there is a line of hieroglyphs, some
understandable without my transcripts, and some still would be curious to know. This is not
a set of standard characters, Beauty and coded information. Today, I will tell you that most
of them mean.
1. Stamp Underwriters Laboratories. It is an independent, non-profit company responsible
for the "safety in science and technology." It verifies, analyzes and audits the wide range of
products sold in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. They have to make sure that the gadget
meets the state and federal safety regulations. Most equipment that is sold in North
America, namely digital cameras, electric guitars, headphones, OLED-displays, check
UL. UL sign is very important for insurance companies. For them it is a reliability of the
product                      under                      normal                       operating
conditions.

mark.

CE (Conformité Européenne). Literally translated as the European conformity mark. By the
way, all devices Adminchega Muz4in.Net present. And it means that the product meets all
regulatory requirements for products manufactured or sold within the European Economic

example. Because product testing is not carried out as thoroughly as, for example, in the
U.S.




5. Officially called CE R & TTE Directive «warning symbol." This means that the device
fouls wireless one or more EU member states. iPhone, for example, violates French law,
