The State Fire Marshal’s Office alerted notification subscribers of a consumer safety alert for self-ballasted T8LED tube lighting pictured above. As a precaution, SORM risk managers are asking client agencies to inspect their lighting to ensure the tubes installed do not have unauthorized Intertek certification marks for the United States. The markings are described in the notice as: ETL Certification Mark with adjacent date code (i.e., 2015/8); ETL Certification Mark no control number; ETL Certification Mark with adjacent Control Number 4007161.
If you find that the markings match the unauthorized marks identified in the notice, please return the tubes to the original point of sale and replace with compliant lighting tubes.
