What is UL Certification?

UL stands for underwriter’s laboratories. Underwriter’s laboratory is an independent organization which provides product safety certification by testing products and writes standards for safety too. This organization is in operations from more than 100 years and evaluated more than 19000 types of products, components, materials and systems annually. Every year billions of UL marks appear on thousands of manufacturer’s products.

Now days, safety is the primary concern for every buyer purchasing the product. No person wants to buy a malfunctioned or a harmful product. Therefore, various organizations are created in order to check the safety of the products.

UL is also one of the independent testing organizations which provide product safety certification as well as their environmental claims. The work of UL is to verify that whether a manufacturer is making products that are compliant with UL standards or requirements. UL does not test each product of the manufacturer instead they authorize the manufacturer to test the product and even apply the UL mark on their products themselves. However, UL makes a direct contact with the manufacturer on regular basis in order to check and ensure that they are following the correct procedures to test their products.
