I have always questioned any organization that will bump you to the head of the line for some extra cash.  It just doesn't seem ethical.

There are other certification companies out there, cheaper ones. So, for those who could care less about UL standards, how do their LED regulations fair? For those people/companies, LEDs are a non-regulated business. I worked for a company making a LED system for a hybrid car. I worked on the signaling system. Based on the job's requirements and client requests, the power system would get extremely hot. I didn't like it, they didn't care, no regulations guided anyone. There needs to be a free and open regulation for such products.

Once a non-profit testing company becomes a required standard, it's a racket.
