UL Registrar’s Enhanced Focus
Recently, consumers are becoming increasingly concerned about the quality, safety, and origin of their food. As UL is a trusted name among consumers, UL Registrar now offers a solution to help give consumers peace of mind when it comes to these types of growing concerns.
UL Registrar (UL R) is a sub-division of UL; UL Registrar is widely known for its auditing and certification capabilities pertaining to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) audits. In the past, UL R’s emphasis has been more focused on consumer goods; UL Registrar will now be turning its attention to food safety. Along with offering an ACLASS Accredited Good Manufacturing Practices Certification for the food scheme, UL R is licensed by Safe Quality Food (SQF) to provide Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) Certifications to the SQF Code. By adding SQF Certification to its selection of Supply Chain Certification Services, UL R continues to remain competitive in the global food industry.
SQF is a vertically integrated and globally-recognized GFSI Code intended to promote food safety and quality management system conformance for the different sectors of the food chain, from food production on farms to distribution and storage of food products through processing/manufacturing worldwide. UL Registrar offers Certification Services that align with its mission, “to be the global leader in advancing sustainable business practices within supply chains, worldwide.” Bryce E. Carson, Sr., the General Manager of UL Registrar, believes SQF Certification is a valuable addition to UL Registrar’s portfolio of services and states “Safe Quality Food (SQF) Certification perfectly complements UL Registrar’s current accredited programs and service offerings, as UL is a thought-leader and trusted adviser in terms of building supply chain confidence and quality within an organization.”
