UL offers independent testing which may be used for audit purposes. The testing is completed in the UK at a European Notified Body and accredited to ISO 17025 to verify the performance of building hardware products, including essential items of hardware for fire/smoke doors such as door closers, exit devices and hinges. 

UL offers guaranteed service levels and short lead times to help our customers remain competitive by providing the information they need as quickly as possible. In addition to our thorough testing and strong reputation in the industry, we provide test results on the day of testing and a full report within two weeks of test completion.

As part of this testing, UL also provides services for currently certified products. Testing for products already bearing a certification, including the CE Marking, from other certification bodies can be used as part of the regular audit testing required by the relevant (h)EN product standard. This adds to the proof of compliance for the product to support subsequent enforcement and complaint investigations. This includes products taken from the market as part of market surveillance regimes to cover construction product safety.

For more information or to schedule audit testing, please contact UL.
