So that would mean that they are not code compliant, would it not?
    Even though the listing may only mention outdoor or direct burial, UL 467 is the standard for "Grounding and Bonding" equipment.

    IOW's, if the listing states UL 467 it's done.

    Burndy on line catalog has completely different section on grounding. If you get into irreversible compression components they have similar catalog number as other components not listed for grounding except there is a "G" in the catalog number.
