Business in Britain requires UKCA marking
In 2020, Brexit transitional arrangements between the EU and U.K. ended. From our offices in the Netherlands and U.K., we can provide services for both CE and UKCA marking so you can continue to sell products across Europe.
UL-EU Mark Safety Scheme
When you need certification for products such as fire extinguishing systems, but no harmonized European (hEN) standards apply, the UL-EU Mark Safety Scheme is a good option.
We offer two scopes — general products and construction products — that cover many types of goods.
Two different certification bodies operate this scheme: UL International Demko A/S (UL Demko) and UL International (U.K.) Ltd.
Rigorous, independent testing inspires confidence
UL Solutions offers testing services according to hEN or UL standards. We can also perform witness testing under our extensive Witness Test Data Program (WTDP) for the parts that require witnessing on your premises or nearby. Our team will work with you to understand your specific product needs and certification requirements.
Auditing and inspection
UL Solutions assessments can help you support product quality according to your quality management system or factory production control. We can work with you to pinpoint inconsistencies, weaknesses and risks, and help you identify your organization’s strengths and opportunities. For CE marking, we can handle your factory production control according to the product requirements from either the standards or the European Assessment Document.
