UL 48 Standards Technical Panel


Interested in serving on the technical panel? Contact Kenny Peskin.

Though Underwriters Laboratories publishes the UL 48 Standard, control over the contents of UL 48 reside with a “Standards Technical Panel” (STP) that represents a broad cross-section of stakeholders in electric signs.

Changes to the provisions of the UL 48 and UL879A Standards must be approved by the UL 48STP before appearing in the published standard.

Members of an STP can represent one of nine interest categories (producer, testing and standards organization, authorities having jurisdiction, consumer, government, etc.).

As of August 2017, UL 48 STP has 20 voting members; only 1 of those members represents UL. 10 of those members represent sign companies, sign component manufacturers, or other sign industry representatives.

ISA's director of industry programs, Kenny Peskin, has represented the International Sign Association on the UL 48 STP since early 2016.
