UL expands marks for fire alarm – fire detection – fire resistance products

Underwriters Laboratories (UL), an independent product safety certification organization, has expanded its portfolio of marks aimed at manufacturers of fire alarm/detection/resistance products that aim to sell their products in Canada, the U.S., Europe and other applicable markets.

“The global marketplace moves rapidly. There has never been a greater need than now in the marketplace for a well-recognized and valued mark that can provide confidence in the safety of the products being sold,” said Chris Hasbrook, UL global VP, Building Materials, Life Safety & Security Industries.

The combined UL mark for Canada, Europe and the States is the first transcontinental mark in UL’s portfolio of certification marks now available for fire alarm/detection/resistance manufacturers. It demonstrates product compliance with applicable Canadian standards, as well as those Europe and the States. Manufacturers now have the opportunity to earn a combined mark with one product submittal, enabling them to reduce time-to-market and compliance costs by combining global testing and certification efforts with one organization at one time.
