Overview

We offer streamlined testing processes and assistance in understanding the technical and regulatory demands of global markets. Our services include energy efficiency verification, performance testing, a precertification review, or a full compliance assessment. You can take advantage of our bundled services to maximize efficiency. We can conduct one evaluation to certify your product for access to multiple countries.

If you don’t need a certification, we can still help. We also offer independent testing, construction analysis, performance evaluations, nonsafety testing and other services, which can be as valuable as certification. These services are specifically designed to help you make the best decisions about how to proceed with your products, potentially saving your time and money as you work to enter today’s competitive marketplace.

Our go to market services include:

  • CB certificates
  • Type certificates/test reports
  • Safety certifications
  • International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)-based insulation system evaluations
  • ATEX and International Electrotechnical Commission Explosive (IECex)
  • Certificates of Conformance (CoC)

Benefits

Pumps

Irrigation, sewage, fountains, wells, swimming pools and spa applications, to name a few, rely on pumps. Our technical expertise and industry knowledge has made it the certification company of choice for leading pump manufacturers. As pumps become increasingly complex regarding energy efficiency control in a wide use of applications, we help you innovate with confidence.

NSF/ANSI 50

In addition to UL’s extensive knowledge of international and UL safety standards, the UL mark for NSF/ANSI 50 - 2015 Equipment for swimming pools, spas, hot tubs and other recreational water facilities is an approved and accepted mark in all U.S. national and local markets with authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs).

Our flexible follow-up services (FUS) program for NSF/ANSI 50 allows for a single inspection per year without a five-year recertification requirement for certified products. UL’s continuing certification process is focused on keeping safe, compliant products in the market during and after standard revisions. If the standard is revised, an impact assessment will be done on the revisions. If the revisions are found not to have a significant impact on the product(s), no further testing or evaluation will be required. If the revisions are found to have a significant impact on your products, a suitable timeline will be set and communicated to confirm compliance.

Motors

Motors, generators and electrical components – electronic controls, switches, protectors and TCOs – are at the core of many of the electrical products produced today. We provide a complete set of services for all your business needs, from appliance motors to industrial motors and generators.

Our team can certify your product – whether it’s being installed in North America or abroad. We offer test programs that can assess your product’s compliance to multiple global standards in just one evaluation. With a single evaluation, we can certify your motor or generator for all the major markets. We can conduct testing and provide certifications to IEC 60034-1, IEC 60034-2-1, IEC 60335-1, and GB 14711, just to name a few.

Along with our standard safety certifications, we now offer a complete suite of services for all your industrial needs:

  • Type certificates
  • Energy efficiency testing
  • IEC-based insulation system evaluations
  • ATEX and IECex
  • Field evaluations
Energy Star®

UL is a global leader in energy efficiency product testing and certification. We were the first third-party testing, inspection and certification (TIC) company to obtain Saudi Arabian Standards Organization (SASO) accreditation for energy efficiency and the first to offer small motor energy efficiency testing for the Department of Energy (DOE) regulations (10 CFR, Part 431). We can help you navigate the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ENERGY STAR® program for your motors and pumps.

We offer testing to IE1, IE2, IE3 and even IE4 efficiency levels, and can provide test reports or CoC to help demonstrate compliance. And by applying an Alternative Energy Determination Method (AEDM) to your product line, we can simplify your testing and inspection requirements.

Why UL

We help you meet complex challenges of today’s competitive global market with services that streamline the product development, reliability, safety, energy efficiency, supply chain and performance testing processes. When you work with us, you benefit from simplified costs, consistent interpretations, streamlined samples and a faster time-to-market.
