The benefits of working with UL
Brand reputation and consumer loyalty are built on product quality and safety. To align products with essential specifications, UL delivers a complete quality verification and global market access solution for a wide variety of consumer products including apparel, toys and food.
Our worldwide presence and regional expertise across all key manufacturing locations enable us to deliver a total risk management solution designed to address issues that can impact product quality and go-to-market schedules.
We support manufacturers, suppliers and distributors throughout every stage of the production process, helping identify and remediate potential problems within the supply chain.
Our comprehensive knowledge of standards and regulations, and deep understanding of the risks associated with the use of consumer products, enables us to accurately assess compliance to both brand specifications and international, federal and regional regulations.
Our services include:
- Chemical testing to verify compliance with local and global regulations for heavy metals, including lead and cadmium, as well as phthalates, BPA and toxins in packaging
- Physical testing—simulating both normal use conditions and reasonably foreseeable abuses—to identify potential hazards, such as small parts and sharp point/sharp edge assessments, and help reduce the possibility of injury and product recalls
- Component testing to determine that the parts of an item and any inks used for imprinting individually meet regulations, so that any combination used in the final product is compliant with applicable requirements
- Product assessment to help verify that the product functions as intended and meets label claims
