UL - 1678 CRD
UL Standard for Safety Household, Commercial, and Institutional-Use Carts, Stands and Entertainment Centers for Use with Audio and/or Video Equipment - Section / Paragraph Reference: Complete Standard Subject: Certification of Carts and Stands specifically for use with Flat Panel Video Displays (Televisions). This CRD is similar to a ballot proposal which will be presented to the UL 1678 and UL 1667 STP. Because the proposal combines the two standards this CRD follows the same format in order not to present a conflicting proposal to the STP on the same subject
