UL approved cables are required on all industrial machines being exported to the USA. This is required by the NFPA 79 regulations. The purpose of UL approvals is to ensure all electrical machinery being imported into the USA is safe to use.Cables that are UL approved are marked with UL symbols so that electrical inspectors will know when a non-UL cable is being used.Failure to comply with UL regulations can result with two outcomes: Either the machine will need to be re-wired in the United States, or the machine will be sent back to New Zealand to be rewired with cables that comply. Both scenarios are very expensive.
