RE:  UL Public Notice Release No. 17PN-07

Model:  ZY-T8-18W1200 BIXX

UL File:  E358956


Dongguan City, China., July 10, 2017 – The following statement is regarding the recent Public Notice from UL regarding the unauthorized mark on James Industry product.


Couple items that must first be noted:

       Date of Manufacture:  2014

       Units:  Approximately 1000

       Warns Link: http://www.ul.com/newsroom/publicnotices/ul-warns-of-potentially-hazardous-led-tube-lamps/


James Industry was one of the first manufacturers of Ballast Compatible LED Tubes in China.  The products were manufactured at a time when the UL standards for Ballast Compatible tubes were still being tested. James Industry paid for the first testing machine from USA and used the specific electronic ballast for testing and passed the initial testing in  July 2014.


The initial 1000 pieces in question were production samples and were made using our James ZY-F03 drivers. 


In October 2014, after the samples were made and sent to the United States for customer testing, UL developed a new testing standard and using standard basic electronic ballast specified by UL itself.  This change in UL standards deemed the production samples non-UL compliant. 


In response to the new standard, James developed the ZY-F08 driver because the ZY-F03 driver was no longer compliant. The related UL file for ZY-F03 driver was been withdrew and the 1000 pieces of the initial production sample has been returned to the factory in China then after.


ZY-F03 driver have been discontinued from October 2014 and only ZY-F08 and ZY-F09 drivers are used to comply with the new UL standard.


The UL file has been updated as such, and all current tube are UL compliant.


James Industry Group Company Limited fully respects UL decision for public notice and apologizes for any customer confusion.  Any question, please contact us or UL without any hesitation.
