60.4.1, Exception / The exception was revised to clarify the requirement. If the Running Burnout Test was not conducted on a product employing thermoplastic motor insulation, we must confirm the exception was applied as intended.

1 The July 14, 2004 bulletin proposed the Fifth Edition of UL 982. Included in the proposal was a revision to add item d) to clause 70.17. However, the reference to 70.17 d) was inadvertently not included with the impact and effective date information in Appendix C. Please note that item d) of paragraph 70.17 will become effective April 6, 2006. Revision pages will be issued to reflect that clause 70.17 d) has an effective date of April 6, 2006.
