UL Germany gains EPA recognition to perform ENERGY STAR® testing

 

UL Germany's Neu Isenburg laboratory has achieved the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognition to perform energy efficiency testing for ENERGY STAR across a wide spectrum of high tech products, including: audio/video, battery chargers, computers, displays, imaging equipment, servers, set-top boxes, telephony and televisions. 

This is a milestone achievement for UL Germany as it covers more product categories than other competitors in Germany. This achievement further strengthens UL's global network of EPA recognized laboratories which already span North America and Asia.  As an EPA Recognized Certification Body, UL provides services worldwide for about 1000 models of the product categories mentioned above.

As energy efficiency regulation is becoming a global trend, UL Germany also provides a variety of energy efficiency certification program tests and certifies product compliance.  UL offers testing for the following programs: Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), California Energy Commission (CEC), ENERGY STAR and International ENERGY STAR, and Department of Energy (DOE).  In addition, we have started to prepare for the forthcoming requirements from the European Commission EcoDesign Directive (ErP Directive) for the European market.

In a market where end users are increasingly aware of the importance of protecting the environment, acquiring energy efficiency certification can help your product stand out in a crowded consumer market.  Once testing is complete and a product is certified, the information will be included in the UL online database of validated and certified products, which allows users to search with ease for energy efficient products by product category, company name, or product name.  The manufacturer may also use the Energy Efficiency Certification logo on marketing materials, packaging, and on the product itself to better inform its customers.
