    Hi All,

    I am currently working on a F&B project in the Venetian Macau, which follows IBC. Our kitchen is fully electrical, NO GAS. The restaurant will have a Chinese kitchen. As such, we have some equipment to be custom made here in china, they are able to provide HK and CE certifications but do not have UL.

    According to some of the guys at Venetian, IBC states ALL kitchen equipment (electrical & gas) require UL (or equivalent) certification. I have spoken with our 3rd party Fire Consultant who has confirmed IBC 2009 requires only Gas appliances, Hoods and Fire suppression systems need UL Certification. (which is understandable)

    Furthermore, I found in 2018 IMC the code 917.1: Cooking Appliances
    "Commercial electric cooking appliances shall be listed and labeled in accordance with UL 197." (which actually refers to electric appliances under 600V)

    What does that mean,"listed and labeled" ?
    Does anyone have any insight regarding this issue?

    Any kind of input is welcome!
    Cheers

    We all default to " must be listed and labelled and installed per", but for cooking equipment, I would think the IBC would be fairly silent...2012 IMC requires Commercial electric to be UL 197....You could call it IBC as the IMC is a reference, but I believe the intent has been for it all to be listed...

    The 2003 IMC did not get into specific fuel sources (electric or gas), but does say listed and labelled...
