Let’s Get Started on Compliance

So you’ve developed an exciting new consumer technology product? But do you know what safety standards it has to comply with so you can bring it to market? Find out how UL can help you meet the demanding challenges of compliance.

Even a seemingly simple device like a washing machine gives rise to a mass of safety concerns and other performance issues.

One Response to “UL’s Start-Up Program”

  1. Eric Veber says:

    We are in the early stages of hardware development. We essentially want to sell a small low power compute with bluetooth and wifi that communicates with small sensor nodes that will be placed around the house. The sensors and the computer will have plastic enclosures and power supplies. We hope to use off the shelf power supplies. From this information can you provide me with a starting point for me to do research on which certifications we will likely need? Also where can I find a cost structure for UL services.
