My name is [REDACTED] the name of my company is US Asian Marketing and Manufacturing. I do consulting work for a number of different Asia based manufacturers my telephone number [REDACTED]. I have been marketing testing products for 25 years and sit on some STP consumer boards at UL.

Over the last 3 years there has been a mass exodus in China from listing products with UL over to ETL( Intertek). The reason for this is UL stepped up its aftermarket monitoring of off spec products and went to a three strikes you lose your listings law. Meaning, if you products are found to be off spec in the market 3 times your listings are suspended and you cannot use the UL mark. Please note the three companies listed on my testing reports in China all changed from UL to ETL over the last 3 years. These products are in 10,000 Ace Hardware stores Wal-Mart and on line with Harbor Freight and in the 800 stores.

After many months of presenting my testing data and making complaints at ETL they refuse accept my complaints which should be against the law. They are not investing cheating on products at all and should be suspended as a safety testing agency. These products are below spec making their maximum amperage capacity and everything listed as per spec false and should all be recalled.

I will send you another few reports also as this is not only being done in extension cords but lighting products too.

PLEASE TAKE SOME ACTION AGAINST THIS TERRIBLE INJUSTICE TO THE AMERICAN COMSUMER
