UL provides clear confidence in cleaning.

We help manufacturers boost confidence in the quality, safety, performance and environmental sustainability of their home and commercial cleaning supplies.

The benefits of working with UL
Backed by decades of experience in chemical specialty products testing, UL’s solutions and services provide the industry with the ability to clearly communicate product safety, health, environmental and performance attributes.

Our safety science expertise also extends to sustainability—a growing concern for consumer and institutional purchasers over the potential environmental and human health risks of cleaning chemicals and other cleaning agents. UL provides independent, third-party environmental certifications recognized or referenced in more than 350 specifications and standards worldwide, as well as other sustainability services to help cleaning product manufacturers credibly communicate their products’ environmental and health benefits.

UL experts conduct safety and performance evaluations to the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) International standards and the Consumer Specialty Products Association (CSPA) methods. UL’s independent auditing body is ACLASS accredited to provide factory certification services under the scope of current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP).

Our laboratories replicate real-world applications to provide accurate, reliable performance testing data. We provide quick turnaround times on high sample volumes with competitive pricing.

We can help successfully launch products. We offer review services early in the development cycle to identify areas for product improvement in order to reduce exposure to product failure and recalls and help successfully launch products. UL also offers sensory evaluation services by both trained expert and consumer panels to help optimize products pre-launch.

UL’s comparative product evaluation program is based on recognized global standards and methods, including ASTM, CSPA, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) label warning statements, to offer the ultimate in quality assurance for brand protection.

We also aid our customers in managing risk with services to assess prospective suppliers, develop quality protocols and monitor the supply chain. Our worldwide presence uniquely enables us to provide services locally as well as fully supporting our customers’ global market access needs.
