Is it ok to use ungrounded, unlisted temporary lighting stringers? And if so. Where can I find the information on it?These are made in Mexico they have no ground and look like zip cord. I can not find any listing by UL or OSHA on the box or sticker.

Yes, you can use it for temporary lighting. Search on Google dude. Google is the only solution for all your question.
Why would you look to google when you need to be looking in the NEC???
He has told us that the product is not a listed product and the rules in the NEC do not permit the use of temporary lighting that is not a listed product.

Aside from the NEC, most local city authorities require listed devices and cables regardless of the installation. In our production department, all of our installations are temporary. We install special events (award shows, premieres and other type of events) and supply electrical distribution and lighting for those events. Check Article 527
