Intertek’s Warnock Hersey Mark has long been a marquee mark in building product industry and in 2013, Intertek introduced the next evolution of the Warnock Hersey mark. The new mark combined the storied ETL Mark with the traditional Warnock Hersey (WH) Mark. Combining two marks into one leveraged the fire-safety strength of the WH Mark with the electrical-safety strength of the ETL Mark allowing for easy recognition by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) across North America. The new WH-ETL Mark provides customers whose products traditionally bore the WH Mark a solution that moves with the direction of their industry.
