The principles and values established by our founder, William Henry Merrill, continue to guide our leadership today. From our executive management team and our councils to our esteemed William Henry Merrill Society, UL is dedicated to advancing safety science in new and important ways.
UL’s executive team is a committed group of experts with extensive experience and capabilities. Based around the world, they help guide and lead UL as we advance into our second century.
UL’s councils comprise authorities, government agencies, consumer groups and thought leaders. UL currently has councils for electrical, environmental and public health, fire, security systems, Follow-Up Services, consumer advisory, management system advisory, commercial insurance, and the environment.
The William Henry Merrill Society recognizes select individuals who have made a significant contribution to the fulfillment of UL’s public safety mission. Those honored are technical professionals who have been recognized by both UL and other organizations as leading experts in their fields.
