Building Code Review Services for Evaluation Reports

When individual safety certifications for building products and materials are insufficient to determine full compliance with code-based requirements, our code evaluation service delivers technical guidance through the issuance of UL Solutions evaluation reports.

Determining code compliance through our building code review services

UL Solutions’ Code Evaluation Service helps in determining code compliance for products when:

  • Model installation codes have yet to address a product
  • Model installation codes lack specific and clear product requirements
  • Model installation codes have multiple requirements for a product covered by multiple standards.

With more than a century of trusted safety testing, inspection and certification expertise, UL Solutions is uniquely qualified to deliver high-quality, technical evaluation reports to help get products to market in a timely manner and at a reasonable cost.

With the UL Solutions Code Evaluation Service, customers receive:

  • A comprehensive review of products and systems in accordance with relevant code requirements
  • A review of test data from accredited laboratories
  • A UL Solutions evaluation report
  • Inclusion of UL Solutions evaluation reports in UL’s Online Certifications Directory, which has advanced search capabilities

Our product safety experts perform Code Evaluation Services as an extension of our traditional product safety evaluation activities.
