Testing and evaluation process
During the evaluation process, we test for typical and abnormal conditions described in the standards to confirm that risks of electric shock and fire do not occur at any point. This assessment helps ensure that the product does not introduce a risk of harm to the user, protecting you and your customer in case of an equipment or controller malfunction.
The UL Certification Mark
Certifying your products with UL authorizes you to use the UL Mark on your products, one of the most recognized safety certification marks in the world. Your products will also be listed in UL Product iQ®, UL’s online certification directory. Regulators, code authorities, engineers and specifiers look at the Product iQ listing and UL Mark when confirming that products meet applicable safety requirements. Having the UL Mark on your products helps your buyers feel confident in their purchasing decisions.
