Our Data Acceptance Program (DAP) provides a means for UL Solutions to accept externally generated test data in support of UL Mark certification. Our product investigations typically involve testing of product samples and while we maintain extensive test facilities, customers can also utilize their own or third-party facilities for product testing via this program. Learn more about our Witness Test Data Program (WTDP), Third Party Test Data Program (TPTDP) and Client Test Data Program (CTDP). Our Data Acceptance Program provides qualified customers increased control over the timing and scheduling of their product testing and certification program.
