Around the globe, UL works to help companies and policy makers navigate market risk and complexity. UL certifies, validates, tests, verifies, inspects, audits, advises and educates. We provide the knowledge and expertise to help navigate growing complexities across the supply chain from compliance and regulatory issues to trade challenges and market access. UL builds trust in the safety, security, and sustainability of products, which enables smarter choices and better lives.
UL is expanding into Europe with three new laboratories to support European manufacturers for market access to Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas. The new laboratories include the recently opened Door & Hardware Testing Laboratory in the UK for mechanical testing of door hardware products and opening in Germany this year, the Fire Resistance Testing Laboratory and the Security Laboratory. In all three laboratories UL tests against EN and UL standards which help enable customers to receive the CE Marking and the UL Safety Mark in one single streamlined process.
