Overview

We offer support and guidance regardless of where you are in the development process for your HVACR products. We have developed and maintain numerous U.S. and Canadian Standards on which the industry relies, in addition to providing standards leadership around the globe. Our extensive technical background and involvement throughout the world market helps keep you fully informed of current and evolving industry needs and regulations as they pertain to your products.

Benefits

We work seamlessly across all global UL locations to streamline the customer experience. By providing customers with one central UL touchpoint, typically at a localized facility, all necessary testing and certification services – including ENERGY STAR®, U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI), Gulf Mark (G Mark), International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), and South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) nitrous oxide (NOx) testing – are easy to monitor. This approach allows us to optimize lab efficiency, better manage capacity, and help you swiftly get your products to market.

Why UL

Our services are offered modularly to fit your needs and are among the most robust in the market, in addition to 24/7 access to all applicable standards.

From our multimillion dollar HVAC/R laboratory renovations in our Northbrook, Ill., headquarters and state-of-the-art combustion laboratories in the U.S., Canada and Europe, to becoming a Notified Body for the European Gas Appliance Regulation (Notified Body No. 0539) and gaining SCAQMD approval for NOx testing, UL continues to invest and evolve to keep pace with the market and ensure we always have the capacity and capabilities to meet your needs.
