At UL, safety is our mission, and product safety testing and certification is one way we deliver that mission every day. The thoroughness, precision and technical expertise that UL brings to our product safety business are just a few of the reasons UL is a trusted, valued partner in solving global compliance challenges and helping to bring safer products to market.
Using our knowledge garnered from more than 100 years in certifying products, our product safety evaluations involve a comprehensive review of important safety issues such as electrical shock, fire hazards, and even performance when it's inherent to a product operating safely.
We actively participate in national and international standards development and our own technical experts have developed more than 1,000 safety standards. Plus, our industry-leading team of primary designated engineers drives consistency, integrity and engineering quality in establishing and applying our certification requirements.
But UL's involvement with product safety doesn't end when a product leaves our laboratories. We continue to assess product safety at manufacturing facilities around the world throughout the life of a product. This, along with our investment in anti-counterfeiting efforts, helps protect the integrity of the product safety work we do.
