UL’s Border Protection Program is tasked with processing product authentication requests from authorities and our customers to help identify and stop the import of counterfeited UL marked products.

Globally, our work with border and customs agencies prevents hundreds of thousands of potentially hazardous and illegal items from reaching the public.

In 2015 the GSBP group continued to work closely with various global customs agencies and received over 1,200 product authentication requests to identify counterfeit UL marked products.  Our team worked very closely with both U.S. Customs and Border Protection (USCBP) and the General Administration of Customs – People’s Republic of China (China Customs) to identify and prevent counterfeit UL marked products from entering commerce channels. This work halted the flow of potentially hazardous items from reaching the marketplace and endagering the public.
