UL Solutions Global Supplier Standards of Conduct

Suppliers play an important role in helping us fulfill our mission of working for a safer world. Although our suppliers are independent entities, their actions and decisions when doing business with or on behalf of UL Solutions affect our business and reputation for integrity. With this in mind, we have recently updated our Global Supplier Code of Conduct and are asking that all suppliers review and adhere to our updated policy. Our suppliers are required to embrace a commitment to integrity, quality and ethical conduct. To measure and ensure compliance, we will be reaching out to all suppliers in the next 12-18 months to complete an assessment of whether they meet our responsible sourcing criteria. All suppliers, their employees, agents and subcontractors are expected to comply with our Global Supplier Code of Conduct. 

UL Solutions Supplier Global Cybersecurity Requirements

UL Solutions takes cybersecurity seriously. Our suppliers have an important role in safeguarding our information assets to which suppliers have access. All suppliers, their employees, agents and subcontractors are expected to comply with our Supplier Global Cybersecurity Requirements.
