You do not need to do this. You can simply visit the CSA group website and look up listed manufacturers. You can also print the result page; the CSA listed certified is shown on the product.

UL and CSA are third-party authoritative certification organizations that correspond to the American Insurance Laboratory or the Canadian Standards Association. Although both organizations have very high authority, generally, North American buyers have a higher degree of recognition of UL, while Canadian buyers have a higher degree of recognition of CSA. As the two most challenging third-party organizations in the industry certification, they not only have to review the manufacturer’s production equipment and quality testing equipment during the certification period. And it is required to send samples several times for testing to ensure full compliance with the relevant requirements of the specification. Moreover, UL even conducts spot checks on manufacturers occasionally to ensure that they produce according to standard specifications. So that’s why the cost for manufacturers with UL or CSA will be much higher. Therefore, not all manufacturers can pass the certification of UL or CSA, so buyers need to check the certificates owned by the manufacturer and the type of products certified. However, ASTM or NEMA generally do not provide certification services, so we will not discuss them here.
