UL’s Alarm Certificate Services program helps code authorities maintain control over the level of compliance for fire alarm systems in their jurisdictions.

UL’s Fire Alarm Certificate Service Program is designed to:
      • Assist code authorities in verifying the ongoing code compliance of fire alarm systems
      • Reduce false alarms
