Certificate verification service
ULCVS is a jurisdictional authority's access vehicle to UL's extensive database of code- and standard-compliant alarm systems. You can use this free, online service to:
- Identify buildings or risks protected by compliant alarm systems
- See protection details for any protected property you select
- Identify the UL Listed alarm service companies capable of providing service in any area of the country you specify
In today's environment, businesses constantly seek the most cost-effective way to operate. Often, that means changing alarm service providers when a better opportunity arises. For those concerned about ongoing code compliance, relying solely on paper-based certificates introduces the risk of making important decisions based on out-of-date information. ULCVS's direct, online connection to UL's certificate database assures you the most accurate, up-to-date information available anywhere.
ULCVS is one of the tools UL offers to insurance professionals, fire authorities and government agencies charged with assuring that alarm systems and services comply with appropriate codes and standards. There is no cost to jurisdictional authorities who access ULCVS. Fire service jursidictional authorities may also benefit from membership in UL's fire alarm certificate user's group.
