What is the issue with the Complete Vario Switch kits and black out of the UL marking?

UL 508 changed to prevent load-break switches from being used as motor disconnect switches. In the interpretation of this change, UL in France (where this product is manufactured) believes that if the switch is not a motor disconnect, it cannot have a lockable handle. The Vario is not a motor disconnect, so the UL mark was taken off.
This issue has been resolved and these devices are UL marked.
