Alarm Certification Services invoice explanation
|Description of charges||Your annual invoice will show charges for the current calendar year, as well as the previous calendar year.|
|Charges for the current calendar year||Certificate charges are reflected on the following years’ annual invoice to allow for accurate calculation and proration of charges based on percentage of the year in which the certificate was active.|
The location fee includes:
Please note: Only one location fee is levied per invoice, regardless of the total number of Listings held. The actual dollar amount is based on the type of Listing(s) held.
|Base certification fee(s)||
A basic certification fee is applied for each individual UL Listing. The dollar amount for each basic certification fee varies based on the type of UL Listing (Listing category).
Basic certification fees include
Please note: There is one basic certification fee per UL Listing. If there are multiple Listings invoiced, there will be multiple basic certification fees.
|Charges for the previous calendar year||
Certificate charges are reflected on the following years’ annual invoice to allow for accurate calculation and proration of charges based on the percentage of the year in which the certificate was active.
For example, if a certificate was active from January 2016 through June 2016, the charge for that certificate would be half (50 percent) of the total annual certificate cost. If a certificate was active for 100 percent of the year (January-December 2016), the charge would be the full annual cost of the certificate. Charges would then be reflected on the following year’s invoice (2017).
Please note: Certificate costs vary based on the category (Central Station Fire, Central Station Burglary, Remote Station Fire, etc.).
|Individual certificate charges||
A certificate that is active for 100 percent of the year is charged the full annual certificate fee.
Certificates active for only a portion of the year are prorated based on the percentage of the year that the certificate is active.
Please note: Certificate fees vary based on the certificate type.
|Certificate issuance fees: New issue versus web issue||
A certificate issuance fee is only applied when a request is submitted via a paper request. There is no additional charge to issue a certificate via ULwebCerts.
Certificate issuance fees are divided into two categories:
|January 31||Annual invoices are mailed to customers|
|March 1||Deadline to withdraw a Listing and cancel associated fees|
