    Yes, it has a UL listing. I am just surprised to a see a fixture that is not compliant is available in the "legitimate" electrical market place.
    Wouldn't the "listing" indicate that somehow it is compliant?

      The fixture can be installed, and deemed "accessible", where there is an attic that allows access to the housing junction box from above . . .

        It that fixture was listed the way you mention, then I would hope the manufacturer would indicate it is not suitable to install where not accessible from above. ... Maybe not.

          Looking at the cut sheet, it seems the manufacturer is claiming it is accessible from below. Your picture looks like the BLED2ICN model.

          Based on what I'm reading here though, I would not want to be the one to try to get to the JB after installation.

            Do they make laparoscopic electrical tools? I couldn't get two fingers through that hole.

                  And I really did think about how to phrase that too.

I never thought about it before but that is a code violation. Still, I have installed many and never had an inspector complain.
                    Even inspectors don't see or think of everything. Too much stuff out there. Manufacturers need to do a better job with their stuff. We should all call and e mail manufacturers when we run into such things.

                      BTW, most are accessible by removing the can by the 3 or 4 small screws around the bottom.

                        Have tried to remove the actual recessed fixture portion from that housing yet ?

                        From what I see on spec sheet, it looks almost identical to the Juno 2” LED, and the driver with wiring compartment actually slides out of the 2-1/2” hole down below the ceiling ....

                        It looks like this part in the pic is inside that large IC enclosure. I think you can leave he wiring long through the compartment but idk. Open it up and let’s see what’s inside.
