UL Listings vs. Recognition. What's the difference
Klaus Erbsland
See below
Explanation:
The following might help:

There are four major levels of UL safety designation, based on its product safety evaluations:
Listing, Classification, Recognition Service and Certification.

UL Listing. This is the most recognized safety certification symbol. Using recognized standards, a product is tested for electric shock, fire and other safety hazards. If the product successfully meets all applicable standards, the product is eligible for UL listing and may carry the UL mark.

All products which become UL-listed must participate in the Follow-up Services Program. Field representatives make unannounced visits to manufacturers' production facilities to ensure that products continue to meet all UL requirements.

UL Classification. Products which successfully pass evaluation for certain properties are eligible
for UL classification. For example, a product could be evaluated for a flammability hazard or for
use in a specific setting (in a hazardous location). Floor finishes may be evaluated for slip resistance properties.

Products evaluated for compliance with standards not developed by UL, including international standards, are eligible for UL classification. Products must successfully meet the requirements of the UL standard in order to be UL Classified.

UL Recognition Service. UL evaluates components which will be used in products that will be UL-listed or -classified. The component could be a switch or plastic enclosure. UL will evaluate the component and issue it a "UL Recognized" designation if the component meets all criteria.

A product which has UL recognized components can be evaluated much quicker than a product which does not have recognized components. Products with UL recognized components are not automatically given UL listing. The product must still undergo testing for UL listing.

UL Certification. There are circumstances in which the safety performance of a product is dependent upon its installation. When this situation exists, the product must be installed by an authorized installer. The installer is said to be UL-certified. The UL certification is "released" to authorized installers of the product. An example of a product whose safety performance is dependent on its installation is a burglar alarm.

Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) ist eine unabhängige "No-profit"-Organisation, die 1894 in den USA zur Sicherheitsüberprüfung und Zertifikation von Produkten gegründet wurde. Die UL-Labors überprüfen und zertifizieren seit mehr als hundert Jahren Produkte, die für den Verkauf an den Endverbraucher bestimmt sind. Jedes Jahr werden mehr als 14 Milliarden Warenzeichen von UL auf verschiedenen Produkte angebracht, die in der ganzen Welt verkauft werden. Mit der Zeit haben die UL-Labors ein hohes und unanfechtbares Ansehen erreicht; das Logo UL wird heute international als Bezugspunkt betrachtet. Es gibt fünf UL-Labors in den USA, in denen die Konformität mit den UL-Sicherheitsstandards überprüft wird.Es gibt verschiedene Arten von UL-Warenzeichen, die alle ihre eigene Bedeutung haben. Z.B.: UL LISTINGHierbei handelt es sich um eines der verbreitetsten Warenzeichen von UL. Wenn ein Produkt mit diesem Warenzeichen versehen ist, entsprechen seine Eigenschaften den Sicherheitsstandards von UL. Dieses Markenzeichen findet sich auf Endprodukten, wie Computern, Schalttafeln, Rauchsensoren, Feuerlöschern usw.UL RECOGNITION Dieses Warenzeichen ist nur für Komponenten und Teile eines Produktes oder eines vollständigen Systems bestimmt. Diese Teile können Beschränkungen aufweisen, oder deren Zusammenbau kann unvollständig sein, wenn sie einzeln betrachtet werden. Diese "Anerkennung von UL" wird vielen Produkten, wie z.B. Schaltern, Speisegeräten, gedruckten Schaltungen, Steckern, Sicherungen usw. erteilt.

I did find two further sites that use "UL-Anerkennung", but I'm not sure how reliable that particular designation is.

"Produktprüfung im Rahmen des UL Recognition Service" or "Prüfung der Produktkomponenten durch den UL Recognition Service" might be your best bet for a translation.
But anyway, I hope this helps.

Explanation:
Recognition = Anerkennung, Zulassung, Pruefung von Produkt componenten.

durch eine Pruefungsstelle wie z.B. UL, TUV, CSA etc.

Explanation of the difference between listing and recognition:

UL's Component Recognition Service covers the testing and evaluation of component products that are incomplete or restricted in performance capabilities. These components will later be used in complete end-products or systems Listed by UL. UL's Component Recognition Service covers millions of components, such as plastics, wire and printed wiring boards, that may be used in either very specific, or a broad spectrum of end-products, or even components such as motors or power supplies. These components are not intended for separate installation in the field " they are intended for use as components of complete equipment submitted for investigation to UL.
