USB-IF Product Certification Testing

Our USB-IF certification testing program helps ensure product compliance associated with the USB Type-C™ connector. We focus on the reliability of data transmission, cable and connector design, and the proper implementation of Power Delivery (PD).

Overview

Massive arrays of devices now rely on USB Type-C for connection, communication and power. The industry needs the ability to distinguish a compliant USB cable, device or charger from a substandard one.

UL’s certification testing for the USB Implementers Forum Inc. (USB-IF) Product Certification Program as an Independent Test Lab (ITL) can reassure you — whether you’re a brand owner, installer, retailer or end user — about the reliability of the data transmission rate, the cable and connector design, and the proper implementation of USB power delivery (PD). 

With a view to address these concerns, we join the efforts of USB-IF to help ensure USB product compliance through the testing of USB Type-C cable assemblies, connectors, PD chipsets and power bricks for USB-IF certification.

Testing to USB-IF specification and IEC 62680

USB-IF has authorized our laboratory in Taiwan* as an ITL with broad scope coverage. We can support testing to the following compliance specifications: 

  • USB 2.0
  • USB 3.2
