Global Investigations and Enforcement

UL collaborates closely with law enforcement agencies around the globe and our customers to support efforts to seize counterfeit products, press charges, and prosecute offenders.

Our team is led by former law enforcement officers, all of whom have specialized experience in investigating and prosecuting counterfeiting offenses. Team members process product authentication requests from authorities and our customers in an effort to identify and stop the import of counterfeited UL marked products.

We employ a strategic approach for dealing with intellectual property (IP) crime, targeting all levels of the supply chain from the manufacturer to the retailer selling the illegal goods, identifying counterfeiters and gathering evidence to support criminal, civil or administrative actions.
