UL CERTIFICATION

Underwriter Laboratories (UL) Certification

INTRODUCTION

UL Certification: UL is a world leader in product safety testing and certification. For more than 100 years, manufacturers have had their merchandise evaluated and tested for safety risks by its independent, third-party safety certification organization. William Henry Merrill founded it in 1894.

Last year alone, approximately 14 billion products with the UL Mark entered the global marketplace.” As a safety science company, UL has the experience, local contacts, and global industry expertise to help you understand and meet regulatory requirements to bring your devices to market globally. It is easier to design a product with UL requirements in mind than redesigning a product to complete a set of requirements. If you are new to UL or simply uncertain about your product construction, request a preliminary evaluation. We’ll evaluate your prototype designs and assist in pre-production product conformance. Pre-testing advice is cost-effective and may often offset final testing costs.
