The UL Registered Firm Mark is a mark never applied to a product because it indicates that a particular facility has passed UL’s evaluation to management system standards. The Mark is used in promotion and marketing by companies with management system programs audited by UL. The standards UL uses are the ISO 9000 series of quality assurance standards.
These marks appear on products whose performance has been certified by UL. UL’s performance certification marks can appear on a variety of products distributed in markets around the world.
Specifically, the UL Performance Verified Mark can be applied to UL Listed communications cable verified to performance standards such as ISO/IEC 11801 and NEMA WC66.

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a comprehensive, internationally-harmonized report that documents the ways in which a product, throughout its lifecycle, affects the environment. Similar to, but far more robust than, the concept of a “nutrition label,” an EPD tells the complete sustainability story of a product in a single, written report. UL Environment’s EPD Certification indicates that the EPD has been reviewed and certified by a third-party.
UL Wellness certification helps demonstrate a product’s contribution to requirements of building standards that focus on wellness, such as the WELL Building Standard.
