UL Listing means that UL has tested representative samples of the product and determined that it meets UL's requirements. These requirements are based primarily on UL's published and nationally recognized Standards for Safety. They do not approve anything.
So it's tested and meets their requirements and they certify that the product meets those requirements which allows the manufacturer to put the UL logo on the product.
Sure sounds like an "approval" to me.
If there is no UL sticker on the product then the guy is lying but it seems odd to lie about something so easily verified.
