Getting information about UL Certified products and components just got easier. Meet UL Product iQ®, UL’s next-generation online certification directory; offering trusted UL Certification information powered by a modern search engine platform. This simple and mobile friendly tool features a powerful algorithm to deliver more accurate and advanced search results and improved user experience. With new features added regularly, Product iQ is constantly evolving to help you keep pace with the market.

Basic user registration, necessary to use Product iQ, is free and includes access to all certification data. 

Why is UL replacing the current Online Certifications Directory with UL Product iQ?

Product iQ is one of several initiatives designed to meet the growing demands of a digital world.

The new directory is built on a modern search engine platform that offers a better user experience, can incorporate more relevant information and support multiple new user features. Product iQ is designed to help code authorities easily verify our certifications for code compliance.

It is important to note that the new directory provides the same trusted certification information as the previous UL online certification directory platform and has no impact on testing results or certifications.

What has UL improved with Product iQ? What features are available?

Product iQ is built on a modern digital platform with a streamlined user interface and a fast, robust search capability. It offers several features to improve user experience:

  • Guided keyword search
  • Search refinement
  • Email search results out of the platform to others

Is Product iQ free to use?

Yes, access to UL’s certification information is free. After registering, all users have free access to the same certification information as in the old platform.

What is the future vision for Product iQ?

While the current version of Product iQ includes content found in the current certification directory, the platform technology was selected based on its ability to expand and grow with the information needs of code authorities and designers.
