While it is not mandatory for all lighting fixtures to be UL listed, many governments require UL certification for fixtures used in particular settings. Consumers often opt for UL listed lighting due to the prioritization of safety and efficacy, similar to choosing FDA-approved products​.

There are various UL listings for lighting, depending on where the fixtures will be used. For example, UL Listed for Dry Locations indicates that the product can be used in areas not typically exposed to dampness, whereas UL Listed for Damp Locations means the fixtures are suitable for areas that frequently accumulate moisture or condensation. UL Listed for Wet Locations is suitable for areas where the fixtures may come into direct contact with water​.
