Demonstrate that your products support human health and well-being
With problems like obesity, asthma, inactivity and depression soaring to epidemic levels around the globe, the importance of wellness is gaining more attention. With much of the population spending upwards of 90 percent of their time indoors, it’s increasingly critical that indoor environments support human health and well-being. With well being coming into focus for programs like the WELL Building Standard, how do you demonstrate that your products can contribute to wellness related criteria?
UL’s Wellness Certification is the first certification program that helps demonstrate a product’s contribution to requirements in the WELL Building Standard, a program advancing health and well being in buildings globally. Products that are UL Wellness Certified are evaluated for criteria including product emissions, ergonomics and chemical and material transparency. UL’s Wellness Certification requires each product to meet the applicable requirements listed in the WELL Building Standard, and can evaluate additional criteria as requested.
Part of UL’s mission to advance health, safety and well-being, the UL Wellness Certification provides a trusted, third-party evaluation for products including furniture, interior paints and coatings, adhesives and sealants, insulation and lighting.
